Cup connections; Summer hockey for Terriers; 2009 champs’ reunion.

Terrier Fan Blog June 16, 2019 Comments Off on Cup connections; Summer hockey for Terriers; 2009 champs’ reunion.

With the Blues defeat of the Bruins in game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals, five Terriers—three skaters and two coaches— fell short of adding their names to the Cup. But there are two BU connections to the champion Blues: former Terrier and NHL standout Keith Tkachuk is a St. Louis scout and Bill Armstrong, father of incoming freshman Jamie Armstrong, is assistant general manager and Director of Amateur Scouting.

More than 20 former, current and future Terriers are skating in the Foxboro Summer League’s pro and pro development divisions. Among them are Charlie McAvoy, Charlie Coyle, Jordan Greenway, Bobo Carpenter, Brien Diffley, Brian Strait, Chad Krys, Max Willman, Doyle Somerby, Danny O’Regan, Ty Amonte, graduate transfer Alex Brink, Patrick Curry, Cade Webber, Robert Mastrosimone, Trevor Zegras, John Copeland, Braden Doyle, Drew Commesso, Liam Connors and Nick Roukounakis.

The pro development league began play this past week while the pro division kicks off on July 10. Games are played at the Foxboro Sports Center.

Looking ahead

As the NHL Entry Draft approaches, The Hockey News’ Ryan Kennedy spoke with 2019 recruit right wing Ethan Phillips, whom he suggests “could outperform his draft number.” THN ranks the right wing from Nova Scotia, who helped Sioux Falls win the USHL Clark Cup championship, at #71. THN’s look at players who have potential to become late round steals includes left-shot defenseman Domenick Fensore.
