BS(R)S Weekly Awards 10/16

In a new recurring series, the fine bloggers here will attempt to boil down our incisive commentary and vast knowledge of college hockey into a few weekly awards which we believe will summarize some of the highlights and lowlights of this upcoming hockey season.  Check back weekly for this feature to see who the heroes, goats and belligerent coaches of the past weekend were.  And now to begin...

The Greg Jennings Award--given to the Terrier who best exemplifies the qualities of Greg Jennings through doin' shit and putting the team on his back. (YOU CAN'T STOP HIM)

Winner: Ahti Oksanen, D--for a player who at the beginning of the year might have been the biggest question mark among returning D-men for the Terriers, Ahti certainly had an enormous first weekend by assisting on every single goal against UMass and adding another apple on Roberto's goal.  Very steady in his own end too.  Probably the single player who did the most to carry the Terriers this past weekend, especially on Friday.

The Joe Pereira Trophy--given to the Terrier who through grit, hard work and determination helps the team to victory both on and off the scoresheet.  Just like Joey did it.

Winner: Garrett Noonan, D--Although Ahti ended the weekend with more points,  Noonan had a huge goal to start the high flying 2nd period against UMass and made a tremendous goalmouth save to keep a puck out of the net in the early going.  Never got outworked all weekend, truly showed what it means to live up to the C.

The Buddy Powers Award--Given arbitrarily to BU's best coach of the weekend

Winner: David Quinn--Two D's Two N's Two Wins.  'Nuff said.

The Denny Green Award--Given to the team or player who is, more or less, who thought they were. (whether or not they were let off the hook)

Winner: Merrimack--0 goals against Denver.  Sure sounds like a Mark Dennehy coached team to me!

Pasta Barilla(C) Sieve of the Week--Brian Billet, BC

Shaw's Star Market Grocery Stick of the Week--Shane Walsh, UMass--Getting run 4 minutes into the season is never a good look.  This makes Duffy the worst kind of grocery stick--one who couldn't even stay on the bench long enough to keep all of the lines separate for the rest of the game.

The Calhoun/Boeheim Quote of the Week- David Quinn, BU(from the Boston Hockey Blog) - I don’t really spend any time on the other team,I really don’t. I couldn’t tell you who their goalies are going to be. I don’t know anyone on their roster. Maybe I shouldn’t be admitting this, but I really don’t.”
