Monday Linkorama

With two conference losses and an out-of-conference win last week, BU fell to #11 in the USCHO Weekly Poll and is tied for #10 with St. Cloud in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.

Senior Ahti Oksanen (photo),  who scored twice against Denver, including the overtime game-winner, and freshman Ryan Cloonan, who also scored against the Pioneers, were named to Hockey East’s Weekly Top Performers List.

Looking back

Seven games into his pro career, Cason Hohmann (photo) leads the ECHL Elmira Jackals, a Buffalo Sabres affiliate, in scoring with a 3-5-8 scoring line.

Also playing in the ECHL: Sahir Gill with the Wheeling Nailers coached by former BU sandout Clark Donatelli, Sean Escobedo with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits and Grant Rollheiser with the Wichita Thunder.

Thanks to the blog reader who sent us this link to a reverse angle video of Jack Eichel’s fourth goal of the season, scored against the Flyers.

Corey Trivino, who played 39 games with AHL Portland last season and scored 14 points, has joined former Hobey Baker Award winner Matt Gilroy in the KHL. Trivino, who also was a member of the 2009 national championship team, now skates for Admiral Vladivostock.

Former BU captain Wade Megan, who spent most of the past two seasons with AHL San Antonio, has joined the Portland Pirates.

Today's Slapshot looks at how Nick Bonino is filling his new role with the Penguins as their third-line center.

Looking ahead
In Team USA's first two games at the World U17 Challenge (wins against the Czech Republic and Canada White), 2017 recruit Brady Tkachuk has a pair of assists while 2017 recruit David Farrance has one helper.

McKeen’s Hockey writer Scott Wheeler’s top 60 prospects for the 2016 draft includes four BU recruits and one current Terrier in his top 25: Dante Fabbro  #7, Kieffer Bellows #8, Clayton Keller #13, Charlie McAvoy #17 and Chad Krys #25.

Trailing 3-2 going into the final period, the Terriers scored three times in the final 20 minutes to defeat New Hampshire at the Whittemore Center in Durham, N.H. The game-winner came off the stick of sophomore Victoria Bach, who also registered a pair of assists, while freshman Sammy Davis scored her sixth and seventh goals of the season, making her the top goal-scoring NCAA rookie.

Terriers were playing without high-scoring senior Sarah Lefort, who was on loan to Team Canada for the Four Nations Cup.  The Wildcats connected on a pair of first-period power plays to grab a 2-0 lead. Captain Kayla Tutino’s goal and Davis’s first score, sandwiched around another UNH goal, cut the hosts’ lead to 3-2.

BU dominated the final period with Davis knotting the score at 3:46 and Bach notching the game-winner at 6:36. Junior Maddie Elia added an insurance goal midway through the period.
