As was first reported on Twitter earlier today by (who else?) The Boston College Hockey Blog, and is now being corroborated by multiple sources, including WEEI's Scott McLaughlin, sophomore defenseman Colin Sullivan has left the Boston College hockey program. It is unclear at this time whether he will remain enrolled at BC.
Sullivan was listed as the ninth defenseman on the depth chart for Sunday's game and saw ice time in BC's 8-2 win over St. Francis. He looked likely to have very limited ice time this year. With The Kid reporting that this is not a disciplinary issue, it seems likely that Sullivan is looking to explore other opportunities with more playing time, though we don't know for sure.
Best wishes to Sullivan going forward.
Other tidbits from practice today per @bchockeyblog1: Destry Straight wore a red uniform in practice, indicating an injury, but Michael Sit was a "full go." Neither forward played in Sunday's exhibition....
While it's looking increasingly like you're S.O.L. if you want to watch Thursday night's season opener outside of Michigan, where the game is being broadcast on a local Comcast channel, there is good news on the Boston College hockey broadcast front: WEEI 850 AM will broadcast all BC hockey games on the radio this season.
(Rest assured that your humble bloggers are working hard on figuring out any way BC fans outside of Michigan might be able to watch the game on TV or online.)
