Mid-Week Roundup, Sturm Traded?

I figured I'd diversify the contents of this blog right now by talking about something other than how much BC sucks...

The Hockey East weekly report came out on Monday, and BU was represented in the Weekly Performers list as well as the Career Firsts list. Defensemen Dave Warsofsky and Garrett Noonan were in the top performers, as they each recorded two assists last Saturday against Brown. Defenseman turned center Ben Rosen was listed in the Career Firsts list as he tallied his first collegiate goal against Brown.

The Western College Hockey Blog is attempting to predict the US Junior roster for the WJC, which takes place in December and January. They have Charlie Coyle making the final roster for forwards, while fellow Terrier Matt Nieto would be left off the list in their eyes.

Kevin Shattenkirk had an assist the other night against Atlanta to bring his assist total with the Avalanche to 7. He now has 11 points in 13 games with the big club, a good sign for his chances to stay up in the NHL this season.

Colin Wilson potted a goal for the Predators last night, giving him 2 goals in his past 3 games. In 24 games this season, Wilson has 4 goals and 5 assists. You can read Wilson's latest blog post for The Tennessean right here.

Matt Gilroy is having a tough go of it so far this season. He was a healthy scratch for a few games early on in the year, and has only recorded 3 points (all assists) in 18 games. He is now becoming more of an odd man out on the Rangers roster, as players such as Michal Rozsival return from injury. If he doesn't want to end up down in the AHL, he probably needs to start putting up some more points.

The B's took down the Philadelphia Flyers last night, 3-0, in a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals series. Tim Thomas made 41 saves in net to earn the shutout, many of them highlight reel quality. The Bruins got goals from Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin (a beautiful wrister, top-shelf), and an empty netter from Milan Lucic.

Word on the street is that Marc Savard could very well play in the Bruins contest against Tampa Bay tonight. Kind of makes sense, seeing as he's passed every test required after a concussion, and he'd be getting a chance to play in front of the home crowd.

It's being reported that Marco Sturm has been traded from the Bruins to the Los Angeles Kings, probably for a draft pick. This would be the second move this week made to free up cap space for the impending return of the aforementioned Savard. Sturm has not played a game since being injured against the Flyers in the playoffs last season.
