Gill Says Goodbye

This morning I woke up and checked twitter like I do most mornings and was a little surprised to see that Sahir Gill will not be coming back for his fourth year at BU. The Senior forward posted this on twitter this morning: A team source later confirmed the departure. It is unknown why or where Gill will go from here. Speculation has it that he will sign a pro contract rather than sit out a whole year to have just one year of NCAA eligibility at another school.

Gill had 28 goals, 50 assists for 78 points in three years (117 games) as a Terrier. Gill's most predictive year on campus was his sophomore tour when he posted a 12-19-31 line in 39 games played.

Grzeclyk, O'Regan Survive, Lane Sent Home

The National Junior Evaluation Camp kicked off Saturday in Lake Placid, and three Terriers were invited. Matt Lane, Danny O'Regan and Matt Grzeclyk where all named to the initial roster. The first round of cuts took place today with O'Regan and Grzeclyk both making it. Lane did not.

Grzeclyk was the last man cut from last year's USA World Junior squad. That team went on to win the Nation's third goal medal in the WJC with a 3-1 win over Sweden in the gold medal game.

According to reports, Grzeclyk has been a standout at the camp and some are even referring to him as a "lock" for this year's WJC roster. The World Junior tournament is in Malmo, Sweden starting December 26th.
