“We’re really thrilled that Kevin Shattenkirk, who was a huge part of BU’s program, agreed to share with us and our followers his perspective of watching BU hockey,” said social media coordinator Jashvina Shah.
Shattenkirk will sign each tweet “^ks.”
This is the third installment of WTBU Sports’ “Twitter Takeover” series. BU ice hockey commit and New York Islanders draft pick Doyle Somerby took over the account to tweet from the 2012 NHL Entry Draft at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. BU women’s soccer player Brea Hewitt has also participated in a Takeover.
In his three years at BU, Shattenkirk played 121 games, scoring 18 goals and notching 60 assists. Last season, Shattenkirk’s Blues advanced to the Stanley Cup Conference Semi-finals, only to be swept by the Los Angeles Kings in four games.
The puck is set to drop at 8:30pm, and the game will be televised on NESN.
