From the FreeP: Quinnipiac Roundup

The No. 2 Boston University men’s hockey team beat No. 17 Quinnipiac University 3-2 during overtime in a physical and fast-paced game in Hamden, Connecticut on Sunday. Freshman forward Shane Bowers got the overtime tally while sophomore forward Patrick Harper added two more goals to this season and was subsequently named Hockey East’s Player of the Week.

We only have a recap this week, but will return this Friday and Saturday nights with a plethora of articles when the Terriers take on Minnesota State and former goaltender Connor LaCouvee will make his way back to Agganis Arena for a few days.

Also a side note: there were some technical difficulties with WordPress at Quinnipiac in terms of linking up the live blog and Nikki’s computer wasn’t cooperating. We’re sorry for any inconveniences caused and will be prepared in the future for road games, but everything is working now and please tune into the live blog this weekend!

Forward Kevin Duane transfers to Quinnipiac

Winger Kevin Duane is transferring to Quinnipiac University, a BU source confirmed with The Daily Free Press.

The forward nabbed playing time in just four games this season and did not register a point in any of them. During his freshman campaign, when he was in the lineup for 32 games, Duane tallied six goals and four assists for 10 points on the season.

Prior to his two-year stint with the Terriers, the New Canaan, Connecticut native played in both the USHL an the EJHL for the 2012-13 season. He had 12 points (5g, 7a) in 18 games for the Waterloo Black Hawks in that time before moving to the Boston Jr. Bruins and recording 28 points (13g, 15a) in 25 games.

In 2011-12, Duane was captain of his team at The Brunswick School and also served as its top scorer with 29 goals and 24 assists for 53 points.

Jeff Cox and Chris Heisenberg first reported the news. Duane will play his first game for the Bobcats in the 2016-17 season.

Update: An original version of this article stated Cox also added that, while Duane would normally redshirt for the 2015-16 season, “there will be an appeal to NCAA similar to Collier going from BU to Northeastern last offseason.”

Actually, per Cox, the NCAA no longer grants appeals for transfer without sitting so Duane will not play until the 2016-17 season.
