In Other News 
Alex Chiasson and Corey Trivino will be suspended for the season's first 3 games. This includes Saturday's exhibition game against the University of Toronto and both the Icebreaker Tournament games. We reported that Trivino would be suspended back in May, but we did not know for how long. The Chiasson suspension is new. Parker said it was because he had broken a team rule back in May as well. 

BU's head coach Jack Parker, will miss the exhibition game this weekend. Parker states he has yet to get clearance from doctors, post bypass surgery. He also said that he should be good to go for the Icebreaker festivities in St. Louis, but if not, then definitely for the next weekend against Umass.  

"I feel pretty well," Parker said. "Every day is getting better and better. ... I feel 100 percent, but I haven't gotten the OK from the doctor yet to go back to work."- The Boston Hockey Blog
