              I was just thinking that. He was a Terrier I never imagined would make it to the NHL let alone win a Cup. Wasn't he the first Terrier to get his name on the Cup?

                Me, too, and I'd imagine most BU fans who saw him play.

                Nope. First was Scott Young with Pitt in '91, then McEachern with the Pens in his first pro season ('92), then Ed Ronan with MTL in '93. Young again in '96 with the Avs, followed by Jay in 2000 (NJD), Drury with the Avs in '01, Pando again in '03. DiPenta with Anaheim in '07.

                  After his sophomore season, you could have made big money if you were willing to bet that Ed Ronan would have a Stanley Cup ring. I forget the numbers (calling Sean Pickett), but if memory serves, he scored significantly more points in his last two years than his first two. He had big goals his senior season (opening goal against Maine in the HE Chamnpionship, 2 first-period goals in the National Championship), but he was still largely overshadowed by the 4 60-point scorers on that 90-91 team. And yet he found himself on the last Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup.

                  Wasn't there a story where Pat Burns didn't know who he was when he tried to board the team bus after getting called up - like he thought he was a team employee or something?

                    Oh, and I think Ronan scored a goal in the SCFs when his pass deflected in off Gretzky's stick?

                      Once again, your powers of recall are spot on, defkit.
                      Ronan often took a back seat to the who’s who of hockey talent on the Habs but he made a couple big plays in the playoffs.

                      Quebec led Montreal 2-1 after three games of the Divisional semifinals. Ronan made his first appearance in Game 4 and scored the first goal of the game, jumpstarting the club.

                      Then in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final vs. the L.A. Kings and Wayne Gretzky, the Great One accidentally tipped a Ronan pass into the net and Ronan got credit for the goal.

                      But he might have been most proud of a play in the Adams Division final vs. the Sabres. The fourth-line forward dove to prevent an icing, crashing into the boards. That hustling play led to Guy Carbonneau’s winning goal in OT.

                      Ronan was an effective two-way complementary player on the talent-laden '90 and '91 Frozen Four Teams. He had 33 goals those two seasons after just six in his first two years. I recall seeing him net a pair at Princeton's Hobey Baker Rink in Nov. 1990. Good anecdote in the Eagle Tribune story about how he got to BU.

                        … and as the article noted, he also scored the GWG in the 4-3 win over BC in the 1st round of the 1990 Beanpot. BU had its share of solid citizens who played supporting roles in the resurgence of the program in the early 90’s teams (e.g. McCann, McDonald, Bavis x2) and Ronan was definitely one of them.

                          NHL.com Willander turns down Sweden pro league for NCAA ahead of 2023 NHL Draft

                          "When you play back home it's one type of game, it's not really the same," Willander said. "I'd say it's a little bit more physical, a little bit bigger guys, older guys. When you get to the [World U-18s] and you play with people your age, they're usually more skilled. I guess it's a really good balance to see that you can play in both. And obviously you got to see a lot of the top guys in the world, you got to play against them, get to see how that works."

                          How it worked for Willander was the chance to shine a bright light on his skating, poise with the puck and physicality, which one scout said reminded him of New York Rangers defenseman Adam Fox.

                          "It's Willander's hockey sense and maturity that stands out," Janne Vuorinen of NHL European Scouting said. "He has really good hockey sense and he plays always on the move. Likes to join the rush with his good footwork and puck skills. Plays with poise when on the puck and makes good decisions."
