Gilroy in the news

Like the NHL general managers and scouts who’ve trekked to Agganis Arena –and Denver’s Magness Arena—to see Terrier co-captain and undrafted free agent Matt Gilroy, the national media have also taken notice of BU's walk-on turned two-time All-American defenseman.

Earlier this week, we linked to a Toronto Sun article detailing the Leafs' interest in being a serious bidder for Gilroy’s services once his BU career ends. Yesterday, Matt was one of Sports Illustrated’s Faces in the Crowd.

Now, New York Times sports columnist George Vescey has profiled Gilroy, retelling the now-familiar-to-BU-fans story of how Gilroy, a late bloomer, ended up at BU and the childhood promise behind his #97 uniform. Vescey’s column appears in tomorrow’s Times print edition.
