Inside BU Hockey: Quinn, Parker, Warsofsky; Reports from Junior National Team camp

Episode 11 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, his predecessor behind the Terrier bench, Jack Parker, and former Terrier blueliner David Warsofsky. A center and captain at BU in the late 1960s, Parker spent forty seasons as head coach of the Terriers winning 897 games, the most by any college coach at one school. His squads won three NCAA championships: 1978, 1995 and 2009, as well as seven Hockey East titles and 21 Beanpot championships.

Warsofsky, a member of that 2009 BU title team, a second-team Hockey East All-Star in 2010-11 and a member of the gold-medal US team in the 2010 World Junior Tournament, has been playing in the Bruins system with AHL Providence and has been called up several times to play with the Bruins. He scored his first NHL goal (video) on Dec. 28, 2013. 

The #1 ranked Terriers spent some time at Walter Brown Arena preparing for Friday night's exhibition game against the U.S. Junior National Team. The contest will be streamed live at no charge on TerrierTV.

Fellow 2016 recruit Patrick Harper, who has joined Team USA for the tournament tallied one assist. In their first game, Team USA was blanked by Russia, 2-0.

2016 recruit Johnny McDermott (photo), a junior at The Westminster School, scored a goal in each of the Martlets’ last three games: a 13-1 win against Kingswood-Oxford, a 2-1 loss to Choate and a 3-0 defeat of Pomfret.   

Looking back
Former Terrier and current Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins coach John Hynes is among the top candidates to move up to an NHL head coaching position, according to The Hockey News. Hynes was a member of BU’s 1995 national championship team and later coached the USA Hockey NTDP program.

John Curry, BU's MVP in 2005-06 and a first-team All-American in 2006-07 has been recalled to Minnesota from the AHL Iowa Wild. He was the back-up goalie in last night's Minnesota win against Boston.
