College Hockey:
Cissé leaves Boston University for ‘other hockey endeavors’

Boston University redshirt sophomore forward Yasin Cissé has left the Terriers, according to a school-issued press release Tuesday afternoon.

According to BU, Cissé, whose NHL draft rights belong to the Winnipeg Jets, has decided to “pursue other hockey endeavors in his native Canada.”

Cissé played in 39 career games with the Terriers and recorded seven points on two goals and five assists.

    How many BU terriers will leave this season for various reasons? Well last year was 4 (maybe 3?) so lets put the line there. Who’s got the over???

    • Dan

      My guess is because he wasn’t going to see much more playing time. He’s played horribly all season. This is a far cry from the reasons players were leaving the club last year.

      • Husky1986

        The betting line does not care why players leave…. (but yes you’re right, last year players were leaving for more scandalous reasons.)

    • Terrier Hockey

      Ask BC why they lost a player this season. At least BU is transparent.

      • Husky1986

        Ok… dont go too far. As we learned last year BU hockey is NOT transparent… BU’s athletic department said as much in their own internal report over the sexual assault allegations last year. And BC lost an incoming freshman (Frank Vitrano) before the beginning of the season… BU lost a returning player midseason. There is a major difference between the two departures. Also… every time something happens to BU hockey, fanboys jump out of the woodwork to slam BC for some made-up or (like in this case) exaggerated “well at least we’re not them” type sin. You’re both great programs. BU just has had a rash of players leaving MIDSEASON over the last two years. Jumping all over BC every time something happens at BU shows an inferiority complex in the BU fan-base. You guys are better fans (In my opinion), and should not lower yourselves to the level of “well at least we’re not them”… Sorry for the rant.

          Because we get slammed for everything that happens to our program. Cam Darcy leaving NU didn’t cause snarky comments about NU’s program from other schools. I could also reverse it and say that other school’s have an inferiority complex with BU. It’s why they love to hit us when we’re down. We’re clearly the team others love to hate. Again, at least BU released a report to the public. Did we even get a follow up for the MBTA and Milner’s underage drinking? BU gets thrown under the bus immediately when anything happens. The same cannot be said for other programs. Did Vermont get any sort of attention for recruiting Polesello after BU dropped him due to an off ice incident? There’s a lot of BU hate out there and it’s exhausting defending it.

            Believe it was found that T driver was at fault……

          • kickster

            Inferiority complex? How many national championships has BU won in the last 5 years? Certainly not 3…

          • Terrier Hockey

            You know the answer is 1. If you’re looking at a 5 year window there are 3 teams teams with championships. Feel free to argue how that makes all other programs irrelevant even though it doesn’t.

            Regarding the MBTA crash with the car Milner was driving, yes, there was a response. The MBTA fired the trolllwy conductor and did not press charges against Milner or any other BC players.

        • Chrisgal

          Why did Vitrano leave BC?

          • Chrisgal

            Relying to myself…..Quote from Vatrano after prospects game in Buffalo in September: “Miscommunication between me and BC admissions dept.”. Apparently NCAA clearinghouse issue. He’s now committed to UMass for ’13-’14…….

  • Terrier Hockey

    He simply has no hands, he’s quick on his feet but finishing power has been nonexistent and he takes dumb penalties at inconvenient times. I wish him luck in other hockey endeavors and hope that another program will develop him into a great player.

  • Catamounts

    He played his first game last night for the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. No points. He has to be an overage 20 year old player so will not have long to play junior. The Armada has a very good team and is coached by former Clarkson University hockey alum (and former assistant coach), Jean-Francois Houle. He said his main reason for leaving was he hadn’t been playing much and felt like his hockey career was going nowhere. He admitted that he had lost his offensive touch.
