Midweek Linkorama--UPDATED

Captain Matt Grzelcyk earned the NCAA’s #2 hockey star-of-the-week recognition for his four goals, including a natural hat trick, in a pair of BU wins.

Daily Free Press hockey reporter Sarah Kirkpatrick discussed the return to the BU line-up of Grzelcyk and senior Ahti Oksanen on Scott McLaughlin’s WEEI College Hockey podcast.

Kirkpatrick and fellow Free Press reporter Judy Cohen played 20 questions with new Terriers Oskar Andrén and Erik Udahl.

College Hockey News talked with freshman Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson about playing for Sweden in the World Junior Championships, about centering BU’s top line and about doing “those small things coaches talk about all the time.”

SB Nation/BC Interruption previews the upcoming home-and-home series between the Terriers and Eagles that begins with Friday's 6:00 p.m. start at Conte Forum and concludes Saturday at 7 p.m. at Agganis Arena.

Massachusetts Hockey explores the keys to improving playmaking skills with BU Head Coach David Quinn, who explains:

“Whatever the situation calls for, you have to pay attention to people on the ice. You just have to [keep your head up]. That’s a mental alertness. And that goes with not staring the puck down when you don’t have it. You have a responsibility every second you’re on the ice. Too often people think their responsibility starts when they get the puck.”

Looking ahead
2018 recruit Tyler Weiss scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner as the Don Mills Flyers routed the Mississauga Reps in GTHL Minor Midget action. The forward from Raleigh, N.C., now has a 16-15-31 scoring line in 21 games.

🚨@t_Weiss40 dangles a few and goes backhand to make it 1-0 with a minute left in the first.

During his stint as a member of the bronze-medal Team USA at the World Junior Championships, 2016 recruit Chad Krys guested on The Pipeline Show and discussed his time with the NTDP and his decision to commit to BU.

The Hockey News’ Prospect Need to Know report includes a sleeper alert on 2017 recruit Patrick Harper/

Sleeper Alert: Patrick Harper, C – Avon Old Farms Winged Beavers (Conn. HS): The prep schooler is leading his Avon Old Farms squad with 20 points in 10 games and he does it with intriguing speed and skill. A little undersized, Harper still plays in all situations and it will be interesting to see how NHL teams view him on draft day. He’s a Boston U. commit.

Looking back
Former Terrier defenseman and assistant captain Brian Strait scored his first goal of the season in the Islanders 5-2 win against Columbus.
