Shattenkirk and the Lightning win the Stanley Cup; 7 named to Jr. Nat'l Team evaluation camp

Former BU captain and All-American Kevin Shattenkirk became the 10th Terrier to raise the Stanley Cup after Tampa Bay blanked Dallas, 2-0, to clinch the NHL title, four games to two.

He also is fourth BU product to win both the Cup and NCAA title—having skated for the Terriers' 2009 national champs—, joining Jay Pandolfo (New Jersey 2000 & 2003), Chris Drury (Colorado 2001) and Nick Bonino (Pittsburgh 2016 & 2017). The other Cup-winning Terriers: Ed Ronan (Montreal 1992), Shawn McEachern (Pittsburgh 1992) Scott Young (Colorado 1996, Pittsburgh 1991), Joe DiPenta (Anaheim 2007), Mike Sullivan (Coach, Pittsburgh 2016 & 217) and Alex Chiasson (Washington 2018).

A ten-season NHL veteran, the New Rochelle, N.Y., native produced 13 points (3G,10G) in 25 playoff games including two game-winning goals in the finals against the Stars with one coming in overtime. During his three seasons in Scarlet, he tallied 18 goals and 60 assists in 121 games. In the 2009 NCAA title game, Shattenkirk set up the overtime game-winner by his partner Colby Cohen.

2021 recruit Quinn Hutson's two-goal, one-assist effort led BCHL Penticton to an 8-2 win against Salmon Arm and a two-game sweep of the Silverbacks. The right-shot forward from Chicago, who also netted a pair in the first win, earned BCHL First Star of the Night honors on Saturday for his three-point game. His five points are tops in the league's extended preseason.
