FreeP: Corey Trivino Out For the Year

Broken Fibula to Sideline Sophomore

"Sophomore center Corey Trivino is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a fractured right fibula, according to a source close to the team.

Trivino suffered the injury in the third period of the Terriers' 5-2 win over Maine on Saturday night when Black Bear defenseman Jeff Dimmen sent him feet-first into the end boards with a hard body check.

BU coach Jack Parker initially called the injury a high ankle sprain in his postgame press conference and did not set a timetable for Trivino's return.

Unfortunately for Trivino and the Terriers, the injury was more serious than that."

Corey Trivino has been the center for Alex Chiasson and Zach Cohen, and is a big part of this team as a two-way forward.  He's one of the guys who can make a big difference in a game without finding his way into the box score, and losing him is a big blow to BU.
It's tough to say how they will work around this, but with the chemistry I've seen on the Gaudet-Bonino-Pereiera line, I'll be disappointed if this injury breaks that trio up. 
Trivino has 4 goals and 11 assists on the season.
