Back In Action

Tomorrow night BU takes the ice against the University of Toronto for their first game of the season. Of course this is only an exhibition game, but it is the start of the long awaited season at last. Yesterday, Friday, was the first time the Terriers had a full practice with the coaches. For the past few weeks, captains practices have taken place.

Tomorrow the Terriers will be short handed. Junior Corey Trivino and sophomore Alex Chiasson will not play due to suspensions.

The Terriers head coach will be Mike Bavis, Jack Parker has yet to get clearance from doctors to return to the bench.

Expect all three goalies to see action in tomorrows game.

Scouting U Toronto  
The University of Toronto started a mens hockey program, way back in 1891 and in 1903 joined Queens and McGill to form an intercollegiate hockey league. This was Canada's first. Former players from the Blues played in the 1928 Olympic games and won the gold medal for Canada. In 1993 Toronto lost the Canadian collegiate National Championship game to Acadia. The Blues have won 10 National Titles, there last coming in 1984.

“During my years in hockey I have been fortunate to have been part of many great traditions. However, the tradition of excellence at the University of Toronto is unsurpassed by any I have seen. It’s great people who have created this great program. Being a part of Blues Hockey is something I hold very close to my heart.” - Mike Keenan, former GM of NHL’s Florida Panthers.-Toronto Varsity

Things to watch 
The freshman and sophomores. See what they can do. This season depends on what the underclassmen can do.

“I get one more chance here at BU,” says Pereira. “I get one last ‘kick of the can’ as associate head coach Mike Bavis says. Last chance at Beanpot and Hockey East titles and last chance at NCAAs. You have to lay it on the line.”- BU Today
