BS(R)S Weekly Awards 10/22
Another week of college hockey means another week of the soon-to-be famous BSRS Weekly Awards. If you don't like who we picked for a certain award, feel to whine about it in the comment section. You should be warned that we don't value anyone opinions but our own though. If you think there is another award we should be giving out each week, we are open to suggestions. Enjoy...
Shaw's Star Market Grocery Stick of the Week- Jordan Heywood,D Merrimack - He was a -4 over the weekend from two homes games with Mercyhurst. That included a 5-2 Merrimack win Saturday night where he managed to be on the ice for the 2 goals against but 0 of the goals for. Merrimack would have been better off playing an actual grocery stick on defense over Heywood this weekend.
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: Garrett Noonan, D- Noons posted a solid 1-2-3 line and +1 rating on the weekend. He also stood out multiple times in the defensive end of the ice and made some great plays on the PK. Noonan is getting plenty of ice time right now and he certainly has earned it. Noonan put the team on his back when he scored the go ahead goal against Wisconsin and took charge of the game. Ahti Oksanen and Cason Hohmann both made cases for this award this weekend but Noonan won out by achieving the Cane's Challenge on Saturday night(a senior scoring goal). With a race this tight, the guy who got us free chicken wins 9 times out of 10.
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-Cason Hohmann,F- "Texas Toast" was all over the ice this weekend for this team. While producing offensively(1-3-4 ) and playing well in his own end on the PK, Hohmann was the first guy in to stick up for his teammates on numerous occasions over the weekend despite being one of the smallest guys on the ice. He certainly isn't afraid to mix it up with a bigger opponent and he proved that this weekend. He was especially feisty in the Wisconsin game after Tommy Kelley took a cheap shot from Kerdiles and O'Connor got run over by Jefferson Dahl. We are going to start calling him Hohmann the Enforcer if he keeps this up.
The Buddy Powers Award- Given arbitrarily to BU's best coach of the weekend
Winner- Buddy Powers- Buddy brings home the hardware this week after BU hangs 7 on Wisconsin and I saw him chew out the refs at least once. Always a quick way for a coach to win some brownie points with me.
The Denny Green Award- -Given to the team or player who is, more or less, who we thought they were. (whether or not they were let off the hook)
Winner- Lowell-Lowell is exactly the type of team we thought they were. A shitty first half team. Last season they were 2-5-2. This year they are 1-3 after getting swept by Quinnipiac. Is anyone surprised? If the answer is yes, then you have need to lay off the Norm Bazin Kool-aid/crack pipe.
Pasta Barilla(C) Sieve of the Week- Landon Peterson, G Wisconsin- He gave up 13 goals over the weekend to BU and BC while only making 35 saves in total. That is not stellar play in net.
Calhoun/Boeheim Quote of the Week- David Quinn- BU " A lot of people called me saying Wisconsin will be coming out for blood tonight. I told my guys 'Why wouldn't we be coming out for blood too?' We lost too.I'm not concerned with what other teams are doing. We were looking for blood and the first ten minutes, it showed."
