Hockey team visits hospital and other links

There is a lot to be proud of with the BC hockey team, but I think their continued reach into the community puts the championships in perspective. It shows that our best team can also take time to be part of the community. We're fortunate that so many BC athletes make a point to represent us beyond the playing field.

Here is a story on incoming basketball walk-on Mike Mendes.

Wake Forest picked up a recruit from Massachusetts. It's one of the rare cases when BC didn't even have interest in a local talent.

If that bit about the hockey players visiting kids in the hospital is correct, Chris Kreider participated, which is really surprising.

After seeing the highlight reel, and even discounting the level of competition, it's hard to understand why BC wouldn't have shown any interest in the O'Neil kid from BB&N. Are we that rich in TEs and DEs? Of course, LoI day is still 9 months away.

Mod10 - Did you mean LOI or LOL? Cuz LOL day is September 1st and pretty much every Saturday thereafter til Spaz is gone.

Stories like the hockey story make us proud.

Kreider is back to finish up his degree in 3 years.

The work the hockey team has done for St. Columkille down the street is amazing, they played a big role in keeping the school open.
