IBUH: Quinn, Hickey, Lawrence; Future Terriers shine at Youth Olympics
Episode 17 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, sophomore defenseman Brandon Hickey (photo) and former Terrier standout forward Jason Lawrence. A third-round pick of the Calgary Flames, Hickey scored 17 points as a freshman and led the team in blocked shots with 89. This season he was the only NCAA skater to earn a spot on Team Canada at the World Junior Championships.
In his second season as Everett High School’s head coach, former Terrier standout Jason Lawrence led the Crimson Tide to the program’s first Great Boston League title since 1970. Everett clinched a tie for the the title with a 7-0 win against Somerville. A Saugus native, Lawrence scored 97 points for BU over four seasons and led BU’s 2009 national championship team with 25 goals, playing on the top line with Colin Wilson and Chris Higgins. That season, Lawrence scored the game-winning goal in both the Beanpot Championship game and the NCAA Regional Final and had a natural hat trick against UMass. He later played in the ECHL and in Europe before beginning his coaching career with the Boston Junior Bruins
