Looking ahead
USHR reports that St. St. Sebastian’s junior center Danny O'Regan has committed to BU for 2013. He's the son of former BU co-captain ('82-'83) Tom O'Regan and the younger brother of Tom Jr., who will enter Harvard next Fall. The younger O'Regan chose between BU and Harvard with Yale, Dartmouth and Northestern also interested.

USHR calls him "A small, skilled, playmaker, O’Regan is an excellent puck distributor, one of those players who finds the seams, and makes those around him better." Nevertheless, he leads the Arrows in goals and has a 23-23-46 line in 25 games.

St. Sebastian’s head coach Sean McCann: “His strengths are his vision, playmaking ability, and hockey sense. He understands and does things so well down low because he has that ability to separate himself from the D to create offensive opportunities for himself and linemates. He’s also a very competitive, internally-driven kid. He works hard in the weight room. He never stops challenging himself. “

St. Seb's final regular season game is tomorrow at Noon at Walter Brown Arena against Thayer, coached by Tony Amonte.

Tom O'Regan played four seasons for BU, scoring 130 points. After playing 61 NHL games for Pittsburgh during three seasons, he began a long and successful career in the German professional league before retiring in 1998.

Looking back

The Hockey News focused its Prospects Watch on former Terrier forward Nick Bonino. Playing for Anaheim's AHL club in Syracuse, Bonino scored an assist and a shootout goal in the Crunch's 4-3 win over Charlotte this week.

Blueliner Eric Gryba picked up his second goal of the season, which proved to be the game-winner in Binghamton's 4-1 win over the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins.
