Coaches and captains of eight Hockey East schools were at Fenway Park prior to yesterday’s Sox-Yankees game to promote next Winter’s Frozen Fenway doubleheaders. BU was represented by Head Coach David Quinn and senior captain Doyle Somerby, along with Athletic Director Drew Marrochello.

Terriers will play UMass at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 7, with BC and Providence playing in the nightcap at 5 p.m. A week later, the doubleheader will have Maine vs. UConn and New Hampshire taking on Northeastern.

Thursday was Nick Bonino’s day with the Stanley Cup and he brought the hallowed hardware to Avon Old Farms, where he won a New England Prep School title in 2007, prior to helping BU win the NCAA title in 2009 and centering the Penguins’ HBK Line in their run to the NHL championship.

A large crowd showed up to pose for photos with Bonino and the Stanley Cup. The Farmington, Conn., native turned the event into a fund-raiser for Connecticut Children's Medical Center with contributions totaling more than $5,000.   In addition, Uber made a $4,000 contribution.
