Monday Link-O-Rama--UPDATED

Terriers remain in the #8 spot in the USCHO Weekly Poll and are #7 in the USA Hockey Magazine/USA Today Weekly Poll.  ESPN’s John Buccigross ranks BU as #6. Two of the three have North Dakota as #1; the other has Nebraska-Omaha in the top spot.

Sophomore Brandon Fortunato (GWG vs. UConn) and freshman Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson (1st collegiate goal and an assist) were named to Hockey East's Weekly Top Performers list.

►The Boston Globe’s Kevin Paul Dupont has penned a lengthy feature story on the career of Terriers’ radio play-by-play master Bernie Corbett, now in his 30th season as the “Voice of the Terriers.” Corbett also broadcasts Harvard football, has authored numerous books on college and pro sports and music and, in his spare time, produces a gaggle of college hockey interview podcasts each week, including Inside BU Hockey. Dupont sprinkles in a few Bernie and Jack Parker stories for added flavor.

Looking ahead
2017 recruit Patrick Harper has been putting pucks in the net for the Neponset Valley River Rats U18s at an eye-popping pace in recent weeks. On Saturday, he scored six times and assisted on two other goals in the Rats' 12-0 blitzing of the North Stars U18s. In each of his two previous league games, one-sided wins against the Boch Blazers and Cape Cod Whalers, the left-shot center from New Canaan, Connecticut scored a hat trick. Harper, who plays for Avon Old Farms during prep season, now leads the Mass Selects Midget League U18s in scoring with a 17-12-29 line in 11 games.

Looking back
Former Terrier and first-year New Jersey head coach John Hynes interviewed for NHL Network today. It airs at 5 p.m. ET. After dropping their first four games, Hynes’ Devils have won their last four, including Saturday’s 4-3 victory against Buffalo (despite Jack Eichel’s third goal of the season.)

►Former BU All-American, captain and 2009 Hobey Baker Award winner Matt Gilroy has been named to Team USA for the upcoming Deutschland Cup, to be played Nov. 6-8 in Augsburg, Germany. Gilroy, who began his NHL career with the New York Rangers, is now in his second season in the KHL, skating for Spartak Moscow.

Women’s Team
Terriers returned to the win column with a convincing 5-2 victory over Vermont at Walter Brown Arena on Sunday. Junior Maddie Elia powered the offense with a pair of goals and an assist as 10 skaters hit the score sheet.

BU jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first on goals by Victoria Bach, Sarah Steele and Rebecca Russo, before yielding a late power play tally. Elia scored in the final minute of the second period and notched her second midway through the third before UVM added one more for the final margin.

Freshman Sammy Davis (2A), Russo (G, A) and Steele (G, A) were the other multiple point scorers for the Terriers. Sophomore Erin O’Neil stopped 23 shots for BU, who outshot the Catamounts 39-25.
