Cape Elizabeth Native Cut by Boston University Hockey Team

Cape Elizabeth High School graduate Nick Breed was cut by the Boston University men's ice hockey team today, less than a week after the team announced he made the roster.

Brian Kelley, BU's senior assistant director of athletic communications, said men's hockey head coach Jack Parker gave Breed a long look but ultimately decided not to carry the freshman on the roster heading into this season.

Breed graduated in June from Cape Elizabeth High School. As a senior captain of the team, he led the Capers with 35 goals and 19 assists for a total of 54 points. Cape Elizabeth advanced to the Western Maine Class B semifinals, where they lost to eventual state champion York Wildcats.

BU announced on Thursday that Breed had made the team as a walk-on. The Terriers now go into the year with nine freshman on the roster. The team opens its season against Providence College in Boston on Oct. 13. Providence features two Maine natives on their roster, junior defenseman Kevin Hart from Cumberland and freshman goaltender Jon Gillies from South Portland.
