Brian Durocher, coach of the Terrier women’s hockey team, has received a three-year renewal of his contract. The ex-Terrier goalie, co-captain of the 1978 national championship team and former assistant to Jack Parker was the Hockey East Coach of the Year in 2007-08.

Looking back
The annual Shawn Bates Scholarship Awards of $1,000 were presented to Medford High School graduates Steve Servido and Richie Lebert. A Terrier fan favorite known for his speed, Bates, the all-time leading scorer at Medford High, scored 143 in his four-year BU career and was a member of the 1995 national championship team (video clip). He went on to play for the Bruins and the Islanders before spending the 2008-09 season with HIFK Helsinki.

NY Rangers Coach John Tortorella, speaking with the New York Times, commented on Hobey Baker winner Matt Gilroy's chances of landing a spot on the Rangers’ roster:
He’s a skill player. He needs some work as far as understanding the defensive part of the game in his own end zone. But the thing that I love about him is he’s trying to get up the ice all the time. He’s got a fair whack at it this year. There are a couple of wide-open spots on D, and it’s important that we develop some young defensemen.

Looking ahead
2011 recruit Cason Hohmann, described by U.S. Hockey Report as “a super-skilled forward,” assisted on the first goal for the U.S. Under-17 Select Team in a 3-2 loss to Slovakia,at the 2009 Under-17 Five Nations Tournament in Fussen, Germany.

The Boston Red Sox, Fenway Sports Group and the Hockey East Association will hold a joint press conference at Fenway Park Thursday morning at 11 a.m., to announce the worst kept secret of the summer. The iconic ballpark on Landsdowne Street will host a college hockey doubleheader on January 8 with the Terriers meeting archrival Boston College in a matchup of the past two NCAA champs. THFB will be there and provide details.
