Troubles for Terriers past, present and future

Former BU captain and Hobey Baker Award winner Matt Gilroy was demoted by the Rangers to their AHL team in Hartford following Wednesday’s overtime loss against Chicago. Gilroy, who played in all of New York’s 30 games this season (4-2-6 +2), has struggled lately but one Rangers observer voiced disagreement with the move.

But it was a tougher week for a current Terrier and a future one.

The Daily Free Press, previewing tomorrow’s game against Rensselaer, reported that Joe Pereira, enjoying his best season at BU, underwent hernia surgery and isn’t expected back until the Jan. 8 game at Fenway Park vs. BC.

The news was much worse for 2010 recruit Yasin Cissé, (USHL Images photo ) who had been on fire for the Des Moines Bucs. In the Bucs’ most recent game he suffered a severed tendon when, according to U.S. Hockey Report, “he took an opponent’s skate blade on the ankle - right between the tongue and shinpad - during Saturday's loss to Cedar Rapids.” Cisse will miss the remainder of the USHL season. While a full recovery is expected, USHR noted, "It remains to be seen whether this will push back his entry to Boston University. Right now, he's a senior in high school."
