BU Signs Some New Recruits

Parker and his staff just made their last defensive signing of the year, picking up Garrett Noonan of the BCHL's Vernon Vipers, according to some sources. He is a 6-1, 205 left defenseman originally from MA who will join former teammates Ryan Santana and Sahir Gill on the ice this year. At Catholic Memorial HS he was Catholic Conf. MVP and called "one of the most physical players in the state" in the Boston Globe. Hopefully he'll be another Gryba-style blueline banger like MacGregor ideally will be.

On the women's side (yeah, ik, women's hockey, but get off my dick this is a big deal) coach Durocher signed basically the best women's player in Canadian hockey, Marie-Philip Poulin, who at 18 is getting compared to countryman Sid Crosby and was Canada's best women's player at the 2010 Olympics. Like she was good enough that I remember her several months later, which is quite an achievement since I watched all of one (1) olympic women's hockey game. Additionally, her Canadian Olympic teammate D Catherine Ward will be joining her at BU. Throw in star UNH transfer Jenn Wakefield and things might be very interesting at the Walt next year.
