Freshman defenseman Connor Doherty has left the Massachusetts hockey team and has already joined up with his former junior team, the Junior Bruins. Indeed, Doherty’s name no longer appears on the official roster. He had not appeared in any games this season and was a late addition to this year’s freshman class, committing just weeks before former coach Toot Cahoon parted ways with the school. He’ll play the rest of the season with the Junior Bruins, where he was an EJHL All-Star last season. Good luck to him wherever he ends up continuing his hockey career.
This weekend’s opponent, Boston College, moved up a spot to #2 in the rankings despite splitting their series with New Hampshire this past weekend. BC did announce that that the celebration of Jerry York’s historic win recently that was due to take place during Friday’s game has been postponed until he recovers from recent eye surgery.
No Minutemen were named Top Performers by the conference this past week, not even Darren Rowe after his three point night on Friday.
February 9th’s game at Merrimack, which will be televised on NESN, has been moved to 4pm to accommodate the Bruins broadcast that day. I missed the fact that the game was ever moved from 7pm to 3:30 in the first place.
