Looking back

2008-09 co-captain John McCarthy, recalled to San Jose on Thursday, makes his first start tonight against the Red Wings and talked about his first days as a Shark. UPDATE: McCarthy played 11 minutes, took 1 shot and was -1 in the Sharks 4-1 loss.

  • McCarthy is the 64th former Terrier to play in the NHL, joining Matt Gilroy, Colin Wilson and Brandon Yip as players to reach the NHL this season. A list of the 60 previous to this season is here (scroll down).

Yip scored his fifth goal (video) in 10 NHL games for the Avalanche in Colorado's 4-3 shootout win over Buffalo. He added an assist and later hit the crossbar during the shootout, en route to earning third star honors. The Denver Post half-seriously asked: "Is it too late for Yip, albeit at the "advanced" age of 24, to get in the running [for the Calder Trophy]? "

Former Terrier goalie Rick DiPietro made his first start in goal in more than a year last night in Dallas. Finally recovered from knee surgery, he was on the losing end of a 4-3 game, stopping 22 shots and picking up an assist on the first Isles goal.

In San Antonio's 2-1 win against Rockford, Ryan Weston scored his second goal in five games since joining the Rampage on a PTO on Dec. 30. Weston had played 15 games with ECHL Las Vegas this season, registering five goals and seven assists. In San Antonio, he joins his former BU teammate, Sean Sullivan, recently named to the AHL All-Star Game.
