Looking Forward: Trivino & Werek

Future Terrier Corey Trivino got a nice plug from EJ McGuire, head of NHL Central Scouting, at the Canadian Junior A Prospects game this last week week, where Trivino (left in photo) and Ethan Werek (right) played for Canada East and also participated in the skills competition.

McGuire said: "There are players in this game, Corey Trivino of the Stouffville Spirit, and Joe Colborne of the Camrose Kodiaks, that will be first-round draft picks in Ottawa this summer. They'll be on our list as first-round selections.”

Trivino's future teammate at BU, Colin Wilson, also is projected to be a first-round choice in the 2008 draft.

After a red-hot preseason followed by some injuries, Trivino has come on strong and has 39 points, including 11 points in the past five games. Werek has been even hotter of late –14 points in the past five games-- and has nearly caught Trivino.

Werek is one of only two non-Major Junior players named to the Ontario U17 Team for the World U17 Challenge in London, Ontario later this month . The NTDP U17s are in this event, too.

In other news of Terrier recruits:
  • David Warsofsky is acting captain of the NTDP U18s, as noted in a recent feature article in The Patriot Ledger. Next season, he'll join the two previous U18 captains, Brian Strait and Kevin Shattenkirk, on the BU blueline.

  • Another 2008 recruit, left wing Andrew Glass, is the leading scorer at Noble & Greenough School with a 6-3-9 line after six games. Glass, a Washington draft choice in 2007, participated in last summers' Caps development camp.

And some some updates on BU hockey alums:

  • This article, a few weeks old, updates the pro career of John Laliberte, now playing for the ECHL Augusta Lynx. It details his four-goal, two-assist game for the Lynx in a 9-1 win over Pensacola.

  • Mike Grier is thriving in San Jose, where he is an assistant captain, but he isn't forgotten in Buffalo., where he teamed with another former Terrier, Chris Drury, for several years.
