Yesterday Boston College forward Brock Bradford, a Boston Bruins eighth-round draft pick in 2005, was named a Second Team Hockey East All-Star.
Tonight at TD Banknorth Garden, Bradford and his Eagles teammates will try to move one step closer to a third straight Hockey East Championship title when they battle archrival Boston University in a semifinal. The winner will face either Northeastern or UMass-Lowell in the championship game tomorrow.
Bradford has thrived under these conditions before, as he captured Hockey East Championship MVP honors for the victorious Eagles in 2007. For the season, Bradford leads Hockey East with 25 goals.
Out West, 2008 first-round pick Joe Colborne and Denver are going to square off with Wisconsin in the WCHA semifinals today. Colborne has posted 9-20-29 offensive totals in 37 games as a freshman.
