Midweek Linkorama

WEEI College Hockey Puckcast: Scott McLaughlin talks with Head Coach David Quinn about the upcoming series in South Bend against Notre Dame. Discussing a trio of injured Terriers, Quinn indicated that things are looking good for junior Robbie Baillargeon and sophomore Brandon Hickey to return this weekend, while senior Sean Maguire, who has practiced, remains day-to-day.

Three Terrier centers are in the top 10 in face off percentage in Hockey East games: #4 Jacob Forsbacka Karlsson (.585), #6 Bobo Carpenter (.580) and #10 Mike Moran (.557). Overall, BU is 2nd in the conference and 5th in Division 1.

Baillargeon has yet to take a single penalty this season, and is close to duplicating the penalty-free season of Brandon Fortunato last year. Before that, the last Terrier to accomplish the feat was Jack Parker in 1965-66.

Looking ahead
The Hockey News featured 2016 recruit Dante Fabbro in this week’s Prospect Need to Know column.

And what made the Terriers the right play for the high-end two-way blueliner with a big shot?
“The biggest thing was fitting in with the coaches,” Fabbro said. “The players down there are pretty special and they have some pretty good recruits coming in next year, so hopefully I can be a part of that and win a national championship some day.”

2017 recruit Patrick Harper had a hand in all three Avon Old Farm goals—scoring once and adding two assists—as the top-ranked Winged Beavers defeated Pomfret, 3-1. Harper is averaging 2.26 points per game and has a 17-35-52 scoring line.

Looking back
Alex Chiasson scored his fifth goal in Ottawa’s 4-1 win against Edmonton

Matt O’Connor turned aside 36 shots in Binghamton’s 6-2 win against Hartford.

Former BU co-captain John McCarthy scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner, as the AHL San Jose Barracudas defeated Stockton, 4-1.
