Q&A with Assistant Captains O'Regan and Lane; schedule update

With Saturday’s exhibition game against Acadia just three days away, THFB presents its annual captain’s Q&A. Since Matt Grzelyck, now in his second season wearing the “C,” was interviewed a year ago, this year his assistant captains, seniors Danny O’Regan and Matt Lane answered our questions.  The two interviews are linked here on the Blog Annex.

O'Regan game-winner vs. Harvard (Beanpot)

Lane game-winner vs. Michigan

►Terriers have made a few schedule changes with three games—Providence on Nov. 13, Michigan on Nov. 20 and BC on Jan. 15—beginning at 6 p.m. and the Feb. 20 New Hampshire game now beginning at 7 p.m.

►The Daily Free Press’s Sarah Kirkpatrick talked with TJ Ryan and his father, Tom Ryan, about the difficult decision to retire from hockey due to multiple concussions.

►College Hockey News offers 10 things to watch for this season, including who will succeed Jack Eichel as Hobey Baker Award winner. O’Regan, who scored 50 points last season, is in the mix. The list of "can’t miss" games includes: BU vs. Providence (10/13-14); Red Hot Hockey vs. Cornell at Madison Square Garden (11/28); vs. Harvard (1/7); and vs. Lowell (2/12 & 13).

Looking back

Jack Eichel’s second shorthanded goal of the pre-season and a pair of Evan Rodrigues goals paced Buffalo to a 4-0 shutout of Toronto. Rodrigues, who earned first-star honors, scored on a wrap-around and later on a rebound.

Adam Clendening furthered his bid to make the Pittsburgh Penguins roster, scoring a shorthanded goal in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay.

Former Terrier Assistant Captain Justin Courtnall has joined the ECHL Allen Americans, a San Jose affiliate and defending Kelly Cup champions.

Looking ahead
2017 recruit Patrick Harper, who yesterday made the Central Scouting Players to Watch list, is leading the Neponset Valley River Rats 18U team (Mass. Select Midgets league) in scoring with a 4-5-9 line in four games, including two game-winners. Harper, who will skate for Avon Old Farms again this season, plans to play in the USHL at Omaha next year, before arriving on Commonwealth Ave.
