Gameday: A few good men

With a bench shortened by four suspensions and two injuries, BU will have the minimum number of skaters available for tonight’s game with UMass-Lowell and tomorrow’s exhibition game against the NTDP U18s, featuring future Terriers David Warsofsky and Vinny Saponari. Vinny might find himself colliding with a familiar face as older brother Victor moves back into the Terrier lineup.

The expected lines and defense pairings are:


Another change will be in goal as Adam Kraus (photo), the first-ever BU player from Texas, gets his first NCAA start. We’ll add BU's gamenotes to this post when they become available.

Freshman defenseman Colby Cohen joins Jason Lawrence on the injured list. He suffered a broken finger when slash by BC forward Nate Gerbe, the same player whose slash broke David VanderGulik's hand in the 2006 Hockey East championship game.

More reports about the suspensions of Brian McGuirk, Bryan Ewing, Dan McGoff and Brandon Yip have appeared in the Boston Globe, USCHO, and The Daily Free Press . (Second Free Press story.)

Among the recruits

Newest recruit Ross Gaudet celebrated his verbal to BU with his first two-goal game for Bridgewater in the Bandits’ 8-5 win over Green Mountain.

Meanwhile in the OPJHL, Ethan Werek rang up five assists in Stouffville’s 11-4 win. Corey Trivino added three assists.

In the AJHL, 2008 recruit goalie Kieran Millan, recently returned from an injury, kicked out 45 shots as hard-luck Spruce Grove lost in overtime to Lloydminster, 4-3.
