This fall there will be four new faces on the BU hockey team. Freshman defenseman Alexx Privitera, forwards Cason Hohmann and Evan Rodrigues, and goaltender Anthony Moccia, a sophomore who was on the practice team last season. The roster will be made up of 18 forwards, 7 defenseman, and three goalies.
Parker had this to say about each player:
#1 Anthony Moccia, Goaltender, Medford Mass... Last Team: Buckingham Browne and Nickels (ISL) "Anthony served as a practice goaltender for us last year as a freshman and used his great work ethic to earn a spot on this year's roster. He'll enter this season as our third-string goalie and compete for playing time."
#6 Alexx Privitera, Defenseman, Old Tappan New Jersey.... Last Team: Muskegon Lumberjacks (USHL) "Alexx was a big get for our program. He's very similar to David Warsofsky with his strong offensive game. He moves the puck well and is really smart without it."
#23 Cason Hohmann, Forward, Plymouth Michigan... Last Team: Ceder Rapids RoughRiders (USHL) "Cason's a center iceman who simply makes his wings better with his great vision. He moves the puck at the right time and can also create for himself. We expect him to be a major contributor during his time at BU."
#26 Evan Rodrigues, Forward, Etobicoke Ontario... Last Team: Georgetown Raiders (OJHL) "Evan is a pure sniper. He's shown the ability to score every time we've seen him play and is very dangerous from the dots in. He's solid all-around as well and will be a great addition to our forwards."
"We're confident that this incoming class will fit well with our team," said Parker. "These talented newcomers will complement our large group of returning players and certainly help us in what looks to be a promising 2011-12 season for BU hockey."
