News update; Terriers land spots on final WJC rosters

College Hockey News editor Adam Wodon, who posted the first article on the NCAA's suspension of junior Nick Roberto, offers some addition questions and concerns about rumor-mongering.   

The Boston Globe provides some background on AJ Greer's decision to leave BU for the QMJHL.

World Junior Championships
Team USA named its final roster for the IIHF World Junior Championships with sophomore Brandon Fortunato (photo) and freshman Charlie McAvoy, along with 2016 recruit Chad Krys making up a substantial part of the defense corps. 2016 recruit Clayton Keller, the leading scorer on the NTDP U18s, was among the final two roster cuts. 

With sophomore Brandon Hickey having made Team Canada’s final roster, half of BU’s starting defense will be on the ice in Helsinki this Saturday when Team USA meets Canada at 1 p.m. ET in the first preliminary round game. That contest and all Team USA games will air live on the NHL Networks.
