Odds and Ends

Terrier coach Jack Parker was out at Williams College Sunday night to observe 2010 recruits Matt Nieto and Adam Clendening in the NTDP U18s game against the Ephmen. Neither one disappointed as both scored for the U18s and Clendening added an assist in a 6-1 win. Nieto, with three goals in his past five games, has a 10-10-20 line while Clendening stands at 3-9-12

WTBU’s Tyler Murray is looking for some answers to BU’s disappointing first semester record.

This past Monday, Flyer forward--and former UNH standout--James van Riemsdyk invited his NTDP teammates, Colby Cohen and Kevin Shattenkirk to attend the Bruins-Flyers game at TD Garden. UNH Coach Dick Umile and several Wildcat players also were JVR's guests.

Tonight's edition of Hockey On Campus will feature a visit from former BU standout Tony Amonte, who was recently inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame. The program, which airs from 7-9 p.m. online, will also include conversations with BC Coach Jerry York, College Hockey News editor Adam Wodon and Elliott Olshansky, discussing the Hobey Watch.

Looking back
Former Terrier standout Shawn Bates has returned from across the pond to sign on with the AHL Manchester Monarchs. After spending last season in Finland and beginning this season in Austria, the Melrose native finds himself much closer to home and immediately becomes the elder statesman on a young Monarchs club. A highlight of Bates' __ year NHL career was his game-winning goal on a penalty shot against Curtis Joseph in the 2002 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Matt Gilroy has three assists in three games since being sent down to Hartford. Reports from New York say the Rangers are looking for more physical play from the Hobey Baker Award winner.

Colin Wilson scored his first goal for the Milwaukee Admirals last Friday, having recently returned to the lineup following a groin injury. He began the season with Nashville where he had a goal and an assist in ten games prior to the injury. Two nights later, Wilson showed he could handle himself when the gloves are dropped in this confrontation with Toronto's Darryl Boyce.
