Heading North

Terrriers return to conference play on Sunday evening and are on the road for a game at Vermont’s Gutterson Fieldhouse. The game, which will air on CBS College Sports at 7 p.m., is BU’s first meeting of the season with the Catamounts.

Alex Chiasson (photo), BU's top scorer who missed the Notre Dame game, a 3-3 tie, and Charlie Coyle, who was named the top forward for Team USA’s bronze-medal winners in the World Juniors, both return to the BU lineup. Kieran Millan will start in goal against Vermont.

Junior forward Andrew Glass, who had been indefinitely suspended, was dismissed from the team for violating team rules.

Looking back
Colin Wilson earned first star honors with a goal and two assists in Nashville’s 5-2 win over Los Angeles Thursday night. His power play tip-in (video) started the Predators’ comeback from a 2-0 deficit. Wilson now has 10 goals and 11 assists with seven points coming in his past five games.

Former Lowell goalie Dwayne Roloson, now with the Lightning, talked with about his college career and the Riverhawks intense rivalry with BU.

"All of my four years the Hockey East dominated the Frozen Four teams. There was a lot of history of BU and Lowell not getting along, for example. But when they were in the [national championship game] my last year, I was rooting for them."

Those BU battles stand out most in Roloson's memory.

"That final year, the BU-Lowell game for the Hockey East championship was [at the old Boston Garden]. "or me, we lost 2-1, but the BU fans as much as they hated us during my years there, they gave us a standing ovation and I was Hockey East
Player of the Year. It was presented that night, also with a standing ovation, so that was pretty rewarding."

John Curry stopped 18 shots in Wilkes Barre/Scranton’s 5-2 win against Bridgeport. The former Hockey East MVP improved his record to 13-5.

Former NHL standouts and Terrier teammates on the 1989-90 and 1990-91 teams Shawn McEachern and Tony Amonte were reunited this week as opposing first year prep coaches. McEachern’s Rivers School team defeated Amonte’s Thayer Academy club, 4-2.

Women's team

The third-ranked Terriers, riding a seven-game winning streak, return to action Sunday against Providence in a 3 p.m. start at Walter Brown Arena. Hockey East named junior forward Jenn Wakefield and freshman Kerrin Sperry as December's Player of the Month and Goalie of the Month respectively.
