chris connolly :: bu vs. north dakota (icebreaker tourney @ agganis arena) :: october 10, 2008
I knew this kid was special the first shift he played.
Five years ago, there was a line made up of Pete (Grocery Stick) MacArthur, Bryan (Boomer) Ewing, and Chris (Son of Raymond) Bourque. The line was short lived - Baby Bourque went on to the AHL after his freshman year - but holy cow did they play well together. That was the line to end all lines in our short time as BU season ticket holders. So, imagine my surprise when this freshman took the ice and reminded me of all three of those players rolled into one little feisty forward.
I took a lot of pictures during the Icebreaker tourney - and a lot of them had this kid crashing the net.
I expect great things from him for the next few years. He better hang around.
