IBUH: Quinn, Krys, Poti
Episode16 of Inside BU Hockey—the Blueliners edition—features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, freshman defenseman Chad Krys and former All-American defenseman Tom Poti. Krys, who has nine points (4G, 5A) and only eight penalty minutes this season, is a second-generation Terrier. His father, Mark Krys, captained the 1990-91 squad that fell in triple overtime in the NCAA championship game, while his mother, Stacy, played lacrosse at BU.
Krys spent his two previous seasons as a high-scoring defenseman for the NTDP U17s and U18s, winning a gold medal in the 2015 World U18s and a bronze in the 2016 World U18s, as well as a bronze in the 2016 World Juniors.
Poti played for two Frozen Four Terrier teams, including the “few good men” squad that upset top-ranked Michigan in the NCAA semifinals (video) before losing in the title game. Poti scored 63 points in his two seasons at BU and also played in the World Junior Championships both years. In the 1998 Beanpot Championship game—the last time BU played Harvard for the title—he set up the overtime game-winner by Nick Gillis (video). Poti played13 seasons in the NHL with Edmonton, the Rangers and Washington, scoring 327 points. He wore the USA colors again at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, winning a silver medal along with four other Terriers: Tony Amonte, Chris Drury, Keith Tkachuk and current BU assistant Scott Young.
Sophomore Charlie McAvoy and freshmen Clayton Keller and Jake Oettinger are among the 23 nominees for the Walter Brown Award, presented annually to the best American-born college hockey player in New England.
