  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Hockey: December 30, 2005

The Denver Cup

The Boston College men's ice hockey team is now in Denver to partcipate in the Denver Cup, and will open the tournament against Ferris State today at 6:07 pm ET. A win will most likely pit BC against defending national champion Denver to play for the title on New Year’s Eve. Read more about the University of Denver Pioneers at Let's Go DU.

If DU and BC meet for the championship, it will mark the third time the two schools have squared off with the Denver Cup on the line, with DU willing both previous meetings. The Eagles will be without the services of goaltender Cory Schneider, as well as stars Nate Gerbe and Dan Bertram, who are all competing in the World Junior Hockey Championship.

Alum Update

After months of trade speculation, Krys Kolanos has been dealt from the NHL's Phoenix Coyotes to the Carolina Hurricanes. Kolanos' overtime winner for BC in the 2001 NCAA Championship game capped a season in which he scored 50 points (25g, 25a) in 41 games as a sophomore, earning All-American recognition.

The Philadelphia Phantoms recently signed forward Blake Bellefeuille. The Framingham, Mass native is in his seventh season as a professional, and was originally signed as a free agent by the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets after four years at BC. Bellefeuille skated with the Blue Jackets in his rookie season, and will join former BCer Tony Voce on the Phantoms, as well as hack Freddy Meyer, formerly of mail-order degree college BU.

New Jersey Devils backup goaltender Scott Clemmensen started for the first time since December 6 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Though the Devils lost handily, 6-2, the team and press are going easy on the former BC star.

The AHL's Springfield Falcons have signed defenseman John Adams to a Professional Tryout Agreement. Adams is in first season of professional hockey after spending the previous four seasons with BC. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound native of Wayzata, Minnesota has collected one goal and nine assists for 10 points and 35 penalty minutes in 22 games with the Florida Everblades of the ECHL this season.
