Wilson signs with Nashville

As many, including BU Coach Jack Parker, expected, sophomore All-American forward Colin Wilson has signed a contract with the Nashville Predators. Wilson was Nashville’s first round draft choice –seventh overall—in the 2008 draft. A Hobey Baker hattrick finalist, first team All-Hockey East and Inside College Hockey’s 2009 Player of the Year, Wilson scored 90 points (29-61) in two seasons with the Terriers, climaxed by this season’s NCAA title. Wilson was named to the U.S. Junior National Team both seasons.

But Jack will be back!
It’s not surprising that some folks would wonder if BU’s NCAA championship might be the perfect way for Jack Parker to conclude his career behind the Terrier bench. Wonder no more. The 2009 Spencer Penrose Coach of the Year winner made his intentions clear last night during a Bruins’ game between the periods interview:

“I’m looking forward to how the lines will look next year. I was making them up this morning.”

► Another Terrier All-American and Hobey Baker finalist, John Curry, gets ready to lead the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins in the AHL Calder Cup Playoffs beginning tonight. Curry set franchise records this year with eleven consecutive victories in February and 33 wins overall.
