2nd annual Comm Ave Charity Classic; Quinn on characteristics of a winner--UPDATED

The second annual Comm Ave Charity Classic will bring squads of BU and BC alums together at Walter Brown Arena on Friday, July 15. This year’s event—with puck drop at 7:05 p.m.—will benefit Compassionate Care ALS and The Travis Roy Foundation. Last summer’s game drew 3,500 fans and raised more than $55,000. Seventeen former Terriers will suit up for the home team: Nick Bonino, Adam Clendening, Colby Cohen, Charlie Coyle, Matt Gilroy, Matt Grzelcyk, Chris Higgins, Pete MacArthur, John McCarthy, Shawn McEachern, Matt O’Connor, Danny O’Regan, Jay Pandolfo, Tom Poti, Evan Rodrigues, Brian Strait and Sean Sullivan. 

► Head Coach David Quinn told the Boston Herald’s Stephen Harris that he plans to remain in the college ranks for the foreseeable future even if the pros come calling. The former NHL first-round draft pick, who is entering his third year at the Terrier helm, also talked about recruiting challenges and the characteristics needed for a team that can “win championships.”
