A fifth-round draft pick of the Islanders in 2012, Somerby was a captain at top prep program Kimball Union prior to BU. The Marblehead, Massachusetts native, whose game took a big step up from freshman to sophomore years, has now shown more speed and offensive prowess as evidence by his rink-long rush and finish against Northeastern.

Hohmann scored 92 points in four seasons as a Terrier and nearly rapped home a tying goal in the final minutes of last Spring's NCAA championship game. The Arlington, Texas native turned pro with the Sabres organization and,10 games into his pro career, Hohmann leads the ECHL Elmira Jackals in scoring with 11 points (4G, 7A).

USCHO’s This Week In Hockey East  also talked with Quinn about why the Terriers have rebounded after their loss to UConn with three straight wins.
“Since then, these guys have really regrouped and we’ve played a lot harder, we’ve defended a lot better, we’ve created offense, our penalty kills have been much better and our power play has been good. You’re going to go through [tough] stretches of the season. You’re not going to play 34 great games. It’s going to be [a question of] how you react after a loss.”

Looking ahead
The early signing period for recruits to complete their National Letters of Intent began this week and five future Terriers have made their commitments official: 2016 recruits Kieffer Bellows, Clayton Keller, Chad Krys and Jake Oettinger, and 2017 recruit Patrick Harper.

TSN’s November rankings for the 2016 draft has four Terriers in the top 18: Keller #6, Dante Fabbro #8, Bellows #11 and Charlie McAvoy #18.

Terriers continue Hockey East action this week with a pair of home games against Maine. Both contests begin at 3 p.m. at Walter Brown Arena.
