THREE WILDCATS AMONG TOP 10 NETMINDERS IN HOCKEY EAST HISTORY

WAKEFIELD, Mass. – On Thursday, the Hockey East Association announced the first honoree in the league’s 25th Anniversary celebration as Providence College’s Chris Terreri was named Hockey East’s Top Goalie in a vote comprised of Hockey East fans and members of the league’s 25th Anniversary Committee. The Wildcats were the best represented team in the Top 10 list with three netminders honored: Mike Ayers (UNH, 2000-04), Ty Conklin (UNH, 1998-2001) and Kevin Regan (UNH, 2004-08).

Terreri, however, also has ties to UNH as he played at Providence College with Associate Head Coach David Lassonde, while UNH Head Coach Dick Umile and Associate Head Coach Scott Borek were on the coaching staff at PC.

Lassonde was the goalie coach at UNH from 1988-91 and returned in 2002. He has worked with Ayers, Conklin and Regan during his tenure in Durham.

Terreri was named the first Player of the Year in Hockey East history for the 1984-85 season, after leading the league in both goals against average (3.49) and save percentage (.905). Twenty five years later, Terreri still holds the Hockey East record for most saves in a season with the 1,078 amassed during that 1984-85 campaign.

Many of Hockey East’s great goaltenders received strong support in the voting process. Here is a list of the remaining goaltenders that finished in the Top 10 (in alphabetical order): Mike Ayers (UNH, 2000-04), Ty Conklin (UNH, 1998-2001), John Curry (BU, 2003-07), Jimmy Howard (Maine, 2002-05), Bruce Racine (NU, 1984-88), Kevin Regan (UNH, 2004-08), Dwayne Roloson (UML, 1990-94), Cory Schneider (BC, 2004-07) and Garth Snow (Maine, 1988-93).
 
Hockey East’s Top Goaltender was chosen by a fan vote through the league’s official website – HockeyEast- Online.com - and votes from Hockey East’s 25th Anniversary Committee, which includes representatives from each Hockey East school.
 
Throughout the season, fans can cast their ballots for Hockey East’s All-Time Team, Top 25 Forwards, and Top 25 Defenders. In addition to these major categories, the conference will unfold a number of other ballot questions at regular intervals throughout the year. The next short-term ballot will begin on November 13 and run through November 23. At that time, fans will be able to cast their votes for “Hockey East’s Best Goal Scorer” and “Hockey East’s Best Playmaker.”
