Weekly Awards 10/28

There is a series of weekly awards that we gave out all of last season.A little late to get started this year but here you go.

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- Matt O'Connor- OC stopped 67 of 69 shots this weekend backstopping BU to two big non conference victories. O'Connor had great rebound control which he has had his struggles with in the past. It was even more impressive that he picked up his first career shutout in his first game back from a lower body injury when Coach Quinn admitted that he had not practiced much before returning to game action. O'Connor was the difference maker for the Terriers this weekend.

Joe Pereira Trophy- Given to the Terrier who, through grit, hard work, and determination helps the team to victory on and off the scoresheet. Just like Joey did. (Interview can be read here)

Winner- Matt Lane- Lane was steady and gritty for the Terriers all weekend. The thing everyone will remember is the tip game-winning goal against Michigan but he was great on the PK and centering the third line both nights. He is solid on the forecheck along with his linemates (AJ Greer/Nick Roberto and Nicholas Olsson). 

Buddy Powers Award- Best BU coach of the weekend

Winner- Steve Greeley- Greeley recruited this freshman class together that has all 10 guys in the lineup regularly on an undefeated team so he gets best coach of the weekend. He also helped get Eichel to campus so that is award worthy.

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

Winner- Northeastern- 0-4 and showing no signs of life which is exactly what we would expect from a Jim Madigan coached team with little to defensive talent or system to cover for a lack of talent.

Barilla Pasta Sieve of the Week

Winner- Kevin Boyle,G, Lowell- Boyle gave up 6 goals on 30 shots Friday night for Lowell. This is especially bad considering how strong Lowell's defensive system is. It is unlikely Boyle sees much time for Lowell moving forward when his freshman teammate only allowed one goal on Saturday night.

Star Market Grocery Stick of the Week

Winner- Jake Suter, D, Lowell- Suter managed to post a solid -6 for Friday's game vs Michigan and for the weekend which generally isn't good for a defenseman or really anybody. I should point out that he had a solid 0 shots on goal for the weekend as well. It really makes you wonder what he was doing when he was on the ice. He literally did 0 positive things all weekend long. Congrats Jake!
