From the FreeP: Cohen traded to Bruins

By Scott McLaughlin/DFP Staff

Like many Boston University students and alumni, former Terrier defenseman Colby Cohen might be trying to find tickets for this weekend’s series with No. 8 Boston College.

The 2008-09 Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player and 2009-10 Hockey East First Team All-Star is on his way back to the Boston area after being traded from the Colorado Avalanche to the Boston Bruins for defenseman Matt Hunwick on Monday afternoon.

Cohen will report to the Providence Bruins, Boston’s American Hockey League affiliate, on Tuesday.

“It’s definitely exciting,” Cohen told The Daily Free Press in a phone interview. “I’m thrilled about it. I’ve already talked to all the boys [at BU]. I’m going to try and come to the games this weekend, hopefully, if my schedule allows it.”
