Associate Coach Pearl departs; Bronze for BU trio at Worlds

 According to media reports, Associate Head Coach Paul Pearl will not return to the Terrier staff next season. The former Holy Cross head coach, who joined Albie O’Connell’s staff in 2018-19, is “moving on,” according to a John Buccigross tweet. Thus far, there is no indication of who is being considered as a replacement nor whether BU will look for a former Terrier or go outside the program as O’Connell did with both Pearl and assistant coach Len Quesnelle.

Team USA finished in third place at the IIFH World Championships and three Terriers have come home from Latvia with bronze medals. Jake Oettinger (Dallas) and Adam Clendening (Columbus) were joined on the US roster by rising sophomore Drew Commesso, who was added after goalie Anthony Stolarz was injured early in the tournament. New York Rangers general manager Chris Drury served as Team USA’s GM.

Oettinger took over for Stolarz five minutes into the game against Canada. He stopped 26 of 27 shots to pace the 5-1 U.S. win. Oettinger was in goal for two other wins, 2-1 against Norway and 4-2 against Italy. He finished with a a 1.37 goals-against average and a .934 save percentage.

Clendening authored a pair of game-winning goals, totaled five points (2G,3A) and had a +5 rating. Commesso did not see any game action.
