Joe Pereira will likely miss a month after under going hernia surgery yesterday. Coach Parker said that it is out of the picture to see Pereira back this Friday and is also unlikely to see him in the Umass game on Jan 2. Parker said that he should be back in time play Jan 8 when the Terriers tack on Boston College at Fenway Park.
Pereira on the season has three goals and six assists in 15 games. As of late Pereira has shifted from the first line to the third line and back to the first several times. Mostly do to the fact that freshman Alex Chiasson was recovering from a chin injury and the flu.
