Summer newsletter. Summer hockey--UPDATED

BU Athletics has published a Men’s Hockey Summer Newsletter summarizing activities involving current and former Terriers. Included: a letter from Head Coach Albie O’Connell, new Assistant Coach Paul Pearl’s bio, two Terriers on the NHL All-Rookie team; NHL Entry Draft selections; 2018-19 schedule; thumbnails of eight freshmen and one graduate transfer; Comm Ave Charity Classic information; and more.

Dante Fabbro spoke with NHL.com about his decision to return to BU for his junior season and his intention to eventually sign with Nashville, rather than become a free agent. The Predators had attempted to sign him earlier this summer.

At the WJSS
Freshman Joel Farabee tied for the Team USA lead in goals at the World Junior Summer Showcase with three. The left wing drafted #14 overall by Philadelphia, scored the first goal in the final game (a 6-5 loss to Canada), converting a two-on-one with Brady Tkachuk. Logan Cockerill was the third Terrier on the U.S. roster, while Shane Bowers skated for Canada.

This weekend, Farabee will play in the Checking for Charity tournament just outside of Philadelphia on a team raising funds for the Wounded Warrior Project.
