Co-Captain Garrett Noonan’s power play goal in Saturday’s 3-3 tie against North Dakota was selected as one of the Hockey East “moves of the week.”
The Cranston (RI) Herald talked with hometown product David Quinn about the winding path from local youth hockey standout to Terrier head coach.

BU Today previews Saturday night’s Red Hot Hockey matchup with Cornell at Madison Square Garden. Two seasons ago in RHH3 before a sold out MSG crowd, the Terriers edged the Big Red in overtime, 2-1, on a crafty deflection by junior Ross Gaudet

Looking ahead
2015 recruit Maxim Letunov scored his ninth goal of the season and 2014 recruit JJ Piccinich assisted on two scores for Youngstown but the Phantoms dropped a 4-3 OT decision to Indiana. In 21 games Piccinich has 19 points while Letunov has 18.

2015 recruit Charlie McAvoy scored a third-period power play goal, then assisted on another, but the NTDP U17s' rally came up short, with Team USA losing to Fargo, 5-4. The former NJ Rockets standout defenseman has three goals in the past six games.

Looking back
Former Terriers Alex Chiasson and Nick Bonino each scored their seventh goal of the season in the Dallas Stars’ 6-3 win against Anaheim. Bonino’s second-period goal (video) gave Anaheim a 2-1 lead, but the Stars roared back in the third, with Chiasson closing the scoring with an empty-netter.

Bonino has received a 3 year contract extension for a reported $4.7 million. The former Terrier captain tweeted: “Excited, thankful and happy to sign an extension with the Ducks! Couldn't think of a better team and place to spend these next few years!”  With a 7-9-16 line in 27 games, Bonino is just two points away from equaling his career high.

Congratulations to former Terrier standout Terry Meagher, now in his 31st year behind the Bowdoin College bench, who has become the sixth Division 3 coach to reach 500 career wins. Meagher rang up 142 points (74g, 68a) as BU’s top right wing during Jack Parker’s first three seasons as BU’s coach. During his senior year, he was voted ECAC Tournament Most Valuable Player and the team's most valuable player after leading the team in scoring, while also earning the University's distinguished scholar-athlete award. Terry played in three Frozen Fours and was followed to BU by brothers Rick Meagher and Tony Meagher.
