Co-Captain Matt Gilroy, with two goals and an assist in the wins over Merrimack and Boston College, was recognized as Hockey East’s Pure Hockey Defensive Player of the Week. The Toronto Sun reported that the Maple Leafs will be among the teams bidding for Gilroy’s services at the end of the season. Gilroy is an undrafted free agent.

The Terriers, now 16-5-1, remained in second place in both national polls, behind Notre Dame.

The New York Times’ Slapshot blog reported on Saturday’s 5-2 victory over BC. Blog contributor CDRAL notes that like most BU-BC games at Agganis, there was a healthy contingent of ex-Terriers on hand. Among them: Mark Hetnik, Dennis O'Connell, Brad Zancanaro, Brian Collins, Blaine Maus, Matt Marden, Mike Eruzione, Bob Murray, Jack O'Callahan, Kevin Kielt, Billy Hinch, Karson Gillespie, Tony Ruvolo, Dan Ronan, Tom O'Regan, John Danby, and Mike Prendergast.

Junior center Luke Popko, whose on-ice chemistry with Zach Cohen has help BU’s fourth become an offensive threat, was interviewed on BU All-Access last week. To listen to the segment, click here, then choose “Free Events” and scroll down to 1/14.

Former Terrier Chris Bourque, who has been called up the NHL by the Washington Caps twice this season, will be in the lineup for this Sunday’s AHL-All-Star game.

Ryan Whitney was the subject of the “Name that Squirt” video during Sunday’s NBC broadcast of the Penguins-Rangers game. Moment later he threaded a perfect pass to send Peter Sykora in alone for a goal.
