Gone camping update: Look who we found!

Last season’s two top Terrier scorers, co-captain Peter MacArthur and Bryan Ewing, will spend next week at Chicago Blackhawks development camp in Bensenville, Ill. MacArthur and Ewing had amateur tryouts last Spring with AHL teams Bridgeport and Springfield respectively. They’ll find familiar faces in Hawks camp: HE opponents Dan Bertram, Ben Smith, Joe Lavin and Simon Danis Pepin.

We had omitted Brandon Yip from the list of Terriers who will attend Colorado Avs prospects camp next week in Centennial, Co., and have now learned that both Saponari brothers, Vinny and Victor, are on the roster for Atlanta Thrashers’ development camp, which begins next Tuesday in Duluth, Geo.

Jay Pandolfo, as expected, signed a three-year, $7.5 million deal with the New Jersey Devils. The 33-year old former BU captain has spent his entire pro career with New Jersey.

The Reading Royals (ECHL), an affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings and New Hampshire Monarchs, has made qualifying offers to eight players including former Terrier blueliner Kevin Schaeffer who split last season between Reading and Providence (AHL).

Tom Ryan, former Terrier captain and defenseman and longtime analyst for BU hockey broadcasts—and sidekick to Bernie Corbett—has moved into the high school coaching ranks taking on the top post at his former alma mater, Newton North. Ryan has prior coaching experience at Babson College.
