IBUH #9: Quinn, Olsson; Holiday skate on Sunday

Episode 9 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, junior forward and assistant captain Nikolas Olsson and veteran Burlington Free Press sports writer Ted Ryan, who has covered UVM hockey for 45 years.

Olsson returned to the line-up last weekend from an upper body injury and scored the game-winner in Friday’s 2-1 victory over Providence and then tallied the tying goal in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with the Friars. Prior to those goals, his last score for BU had come in the 2015 Hockey East title game when he scored the game-winner in a 5-3 win against Lowell (video).

#5 Terriers are on the road for a weekend series at #12 Vermont. Both games will be available on UVM’s free live stream.

A pair of one-time BU commits who later became Catamounts, Jarrid Privitera and Ori Abramson, are out of the line-up with injuries this weekend.
