Return to Frozen Fenway

David Warsofsky (#5) celebrates a goal in the first Frozen Fenway game
The Terriers will return to Fenway Park on Jan. 5, taking on UMass-Amherst as part of Frozen Fenway 2017. Hockey East announced the schedule of outdoor games that will feature doubleheaders on Jan. 7 and Jan. 14. BC will meet Providence in the second game on Jan. 7.

This will be BU’s third Frozen Fenway appearance. Terriers won the inaugural game at the Red Sox home, defeating BC, 3-2, (video) in front of 38,472 fans - the largest crowd to ever watch a college hockey game in the eastern United States. In 2014, BU dropped a 7-3 decision to Maine.

College Hockey Inc. has posted a list--regularly updated--of college players who will be attending NHL development camps. Those on the list, so far: Kieffer Bellows (Islanders), Dante Fabbro (Nashville), Patrick Harper (Nashville), Clayton Keller (Arizona), Jonathan MacLeod (Tampa Bay), Sean Maguire (Pittsburgh), Matt O’Connor (Ottawa).

Charlie McAvoy, selected 14th overall in the NHL draft by the Bruins, joined Scott McLaughlin for a WEEI off-season puckcast.

► Newsday’s Arthur Staple spoke with Islanders draft pick and 2016-17 Terrier captain Doyle Somerby at the Isles' development camp about his return for his senior year. In a series of Tweet, Staple wrote:

-Also talked w/ Doyle Somerby, who arrived today. Said #Isles were "very understanding and supportive" of decision to stay at Boston U.
-Somerby could become a FA after next season but says that's not his plan. "Finishing my degree is incredibly important to me and my family."
-Somerby is a journalism major at BU. If hockey doesn't pan out he could join the impressive cast of BU alums on an NHL beat.
