Providence College goalie Jon Gillies got the win as the US smashed Canada 5-1 on Saturday, in the final game of World Junior evaluation camp as Don Lucia and USA Hockey get set to pick the roster for the 2014 World Junior Championships.

USA Falls Short in Gold Medal Game to Canada at Ivan Hlinka Tournament - Western College Hockey Blog

Future Eagle J.D. Dudek did not fare as well against Canada, as he and the US U-18 Selects were rolled 4-0 by the Canadians in the gold medal match of the Ivan Hlinka Tournament in the Czech Republic. Still, this was a good result for the US, who has traditionally struggled at this tournament, finishing 7th in 2012.

The BC Blog, » Chase Rettig: Eagles need to ‘scratch and claw’ for bowl eligibility

It’s no secret that if the Boston College Eagles are going to turn around a trend that saw them win just six games in the past two seasons, quarterback Chase Rettig is going to lead the way.

Nobody in Worcester County has seen as much hype the last nine months quite like Doherty High athlete Isaac Yiadom, who became the first of seven (to-date) in-state pledges of Boston College coach Steve Addazio's historic 2014 recruiting class with a commitment in late March.

Meglaiola: Medway's Davenport living the dream at Boston College - The MetroWest Daily News

A nice profile of Medway's Ted Davenport is now on scholarship and a safety at Boston College after starting his career as a non-scholarship player last year, playing primarily on special teams.

Former Boston College star Charlie Davies, 27, has returned to his native New England to play for the Revolution, the club announced on August 9.

The Minutemen, under the direction of second-year head coach John Micheletto, had quite a bit of roster turnover during the offseason. In addition, the Minutemen will be playing their home games in a revamped Mullins Center.

They're going to have to institute some other changes, like requiring knowledge of at least one word more than four letters long in order to gain admission, before I'd make the haul out to Amherst again for a game, but it's nice to see UMass making some tweaks to keep their bland dual-purpose facility up to date. BC has been doing the same at Conte Forum, with some success at making it a decent hockey venue. At the end of the day, though, it's tough to make an 8,000+ seat combo basketball/hockey arena have a great college hockey feel.

Unfortunately, no stadium tweaks can help with UMass's roster issues.
