Joe Pereira to play for Worcester Sharks

By Arielle Aronson/DFP Staff

Senior co-captain Joe Pereira is moving on with his hockey career now that the Terriers’ season has come to an end. The 5-foot-10 forward will dress for the Worcester Sharks in tomorrow’s game against the Portland Pirates on an amateur tryout contract. Pereira said he is unsure how long he will be in Worcester.

The Worcester Sharks are the AHL affiliate of the NHL’s San Jose Sharks. Former Terriers John McCarthy and Sean Sullivan also play for Worcester.

Pereira led BU with 15 goals this season and finished the year with 21 points. In his four years at BU, Pereira totaled 61 points with 27 goals and 34 assists. Pereira still plans to graduate on time.

  1. Glad to see Joe P move on before the NHL realizes that he can’t play. As a 24 year old, it’s about time he left college behind.

  2. Why couldn’t we get the good Pereira who plays for UMASS? Instead, we’re stuck with the bum who can’t play.

  3. Wasn’t Chris Connolly the mental midget who is the 24 year old junior?

    Wow – a 23 year old senior and a 24 year old junior yet Parker and the BU fans keep claiming BU is a young team. It’s so hilarious when the Parker lies are exposed.

  4. This team is the youngest he has ever coached class-wise and as stated numerous times it was on the number of scholarships available. Would you rather have Nieto, Coyle and Gil or Pereira? BU wanted him to play a year of juniors and he chose not to. His brother always played with heart and hustled while leading the team in goals this year. I think he is a decent player and the article is about his tryout with an AHL team…he obviously isn’t a bum you idiot.

  5. Yup he did… now what for a weak PP? JP better think about trying some of the other options with players that were brought up during the season but not tried.

  6. At least Waro left before the NHL realized that he just isn’t that good.

    Lets see who else follows him out of BU.
