    March 19, 2013

Across town at Providence College, freshman goalie Jon Gillies put up ludicrous numbers in February, helping Providence stay at the top of the Hockey East conference.

Souza had rounded the corner into his 30s, and his perceived value on his Italian team, Bolzano, was that of a mentor to younger players, someone who could help just as much in practices as games.
