Who's Hot?

Boston College sophomore forward Adam Gilmour has a goal in each of his last four games. The Hanover, Mass. native scored the game-tying goal at Northeastern Friday night with just over three minutes to go in regulation. A fourth round selection by the Minnesota Wild in the 2012 NHL Draft, Gilmour now has a five-game point streak heading into Friday's clash at archrival Boston University.

UConn freshman forward Spencer Naas has a four game goal scoring streak in which he's lit the lamp five times. The Benilde St. Margaret's alum has at least a goal in five of his last six games, including two game-winners. Dating back to his days as an assistant at BC, Mike Cavanaugh has hit gold a few times in the state of Minnesota. He appears to have done so here with Naas.

Grayson Downing was expected to carry a lot of the load offensively for New Hampshire this season. The senior forward didn't do much to carry through on that expectation during the first semester, but carries a four-game point streak heading into Tuesday's game against Providence. The Abbottsford, British Columbia native has six goals and three assists the past four games in which UNH has gone 2-1-1.

Tom Parisi doesn't get the attention he deserves on the Providence blue line thanks to playing along side NHL Draft picks such as John Gilmour, Anthony Florentino and Jake Walman. However, Parisi might be one of the steadier defenders in Hockey East. After scoring a goal in his team's season opener at Ohio State, the Commack, NY native had been held scoreless until his two-goal performance against Colorado College last Sunday. His +7 plus/minus over the last six games also stands out.
