Terrier Fan Blog August 7, 2018 Comments Off on Summer newsletter. Summer hockey

BU Athletics has published a Men’s Hockey Summer Newsletter summarizing activities involving current and former Terriers. Included: a letter from Head Coach Albie O’Connell, new Assistant Coach Paul Pearl’s bio, two Terriers on the NHL All-Rookie team; NHL Entry Draft selections; 2018-19 schedule; thumbnails of eight freshmen and one graduate transfer; Comm Ave Charity Classic information; and more.

Dante Fabbro spoke with NHL.com about his decision to return to BU for his junior season and his intention to eventually sign with Nashville, rather than become a free agent. The Predators had attempted to sign him earlier this summer.

At the WJSS
Freshman Joel Farabee tied for the Team USA lead in goals at the World Junior Summer Showcase with three. The left wing drafted #14 overall by Philadelphia, scored the first goal in the final game (a 6-5 loss to Canada), converting a two-on-one with Brady Tkachuk. Logan Cockerill was the third Terrier on the U.S. roster, while Shane Bowers skated for Canada.

Hastings also had high praise for Joel Farabee (PHI). Said he was “thoroughly impressed” with him as a player and a person. Liked the way he responded to adversity and showcased tremendous abilities on both sides of the puck. Major factor in today’s game.

A couple of undersung players that I’ve really liked for USA are Logan Cockerill (NYI), who looks like he’s bulked up from last season and still can fly, and Sasha Chmelevski (SJS) who has shown impressive versatility, which will be key for him to make the team.

This weekend, Farabee will play in the Checking for Charity tournament just outside of Philadelphia on a team raising funds for the Wounded Warrior Project.
 
Looking ahead

2019 recruit Robert Mastrosimone scored Team USA’s first two goals in a 6-0 win against the Czech Republic in preliminary round play at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup tournament in Red Deer, Alberta. Both Mastrosimone (USHL Chicago Steel) and 2020 recruit Cade Webber (The Rivers School) were named to the U.S. U-18 Select team following the USA Hockey Select 17 Development Camp.
