Looking ahead
2018 recruits Joel Farabee and Jake Wise scored goals in Team USA’s 5-1 win against Russian in the quarterfinals of the IIHF World U18 Championships in Russia. Wise assisted on Team USA’s first goal and Farabee provided the eventual game-winner with a shorthanded goal in the second period. Wise would add an empty netter as the USA advanced to the semifinals against the Czech Republic on Saturday. The game will air on the NHL Network at 10:30 a.m. ET. Farabee has four goals and two assists for Team USA in the tournament and 74 points (33 G, 41A) for the season.

  USAToday High School Sports has rated Farabee #2 among top American high schoolers for the upcoming NHL Entry Draft.

2019 recruit Robert Mastrosimone scored an extra-attacker goal to bring the Chicago Steel even with the NTDP U17s, but Team USA won, 3-2, in overtime. The U17s lead the best-of-five USHL playoff series, 2-1. Mastrosimone, one of the league’s youngest players, had 45 points in 60 regular-season games for Chicago.

Looking back

A pair of former Terriers are being considered to fill NHL general managerial vacancies. The Buffalo News reports the former BU Associate Head Coach Steve Greeley is having a second interview with the Carolina Hurricanes. Greeley, who is in his first season as Sabres assistant GM, had his first interview place last month. The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports that ex-Terrier Paul Fenton (photo) is the front-runner for the Minnesota Wild job. He’s currently the assistant GM for Nashville.
