UPDATED: Alexx Privitera leaves BU, brother Jarrid reportedly decommits

By Tim Healey/DFP Staff

Defenseman Alexx Privitera is no longer a member of the Boston University men’s hockey program, a source confirmed with The Daily Free Press Tuesday night.

U.S. Hockey Report said earlier Tuesday that Privitera and his younger brother, forward Jarrid Privitera, agreed to part ways with BU. The younger sibling had been slated to arrive on Commonwealth Avenue either this fall or next.

The news comes after months of speculation as to whether or not the Old Tappan, N.J., natives would suit up as Terriers following Alexx’s mid-February suspension. He was forced to sit out the season’s final 13 games by then-head coach Jack Parker following repeated on-ice discipline incidents.

The final straw came against Harvard in the Beanpot consolation game Feb. 11, when Privitera got a game misconduct after kneeing a member of the Crimson.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound blueliner tallied two goals and 10 assists before his suspension. He also had what was then a team-high 74 penalty minutes and conference-high 72 blocked shots.

Jarrid, who stands at 5-foot-7, 150 pounds, spent the 2012-13 season with the Dubuque Fighting Saints (USHL), totaling 26 points (15 goals, 11 assists) in 56 games as the Fighting Saints captured the Clark Cup, the league’s top trophy.

  1. Glad that these type of players are not going to be BU guys in the future. We need men who have their heads screwed on in life and on the rink. Too many jerks have hurt the program in the last four years. I hope Quinn uses these two slots to get MEN into the program and not little, entitled boys.

  2. Alexx had his scholarship taken away by Coach Quinn,&told Jarred he was no longer wanted at BU HOCKEY. I think coach Quinn will run a no non-sense program on & off the ice.I think BU found a diamond in the ruff with Quinn.I also heard Bavis was asked for his resignation….Coach Quinn will lead by example, my brother said coach Quinn is in the wieght room every morning at 5AM -working out with his players..GO BU!!!!!

  3. A. Privitera 9/27/13 Dubuque USHL–5 min major tripping/10 min match penalty–attempt to injure. The kid will never learn. He’s been doing it all his life. BU lucky not to have him or his nutty mother anymore. I do feel sorry for the brother–nice kid–he’s stuck with those 2 for the rest of his life.
