Rookie to Watch- Gabriel DuLuc of Dorchester Some great fighters on the rise that are very impressive. Sergio Gabriel Martinez of Argentina 47-2-2, 26 KO's. He's beaten Paul Williams and Kelly Pavlik. Peter Manfredo, Jr., Rhode Island USA. 37-6, 20 KO's, has beaten Daniel Edouard and Jhon Berrio in his last two fights. Vicious Victor Ortiz 29-2-2, 22 KO's of California USA, has beaten Andre Berto and Vivian Harris. The WBC Welterweight Champion Victor Ortiz is like his nickname "vicious." There's also Edwin "La Bomba" "Rookie to Watch!" Gabriel DnLuc, with Trainer Martin Grealish. and James McGirt in his early career. Thank you Ali- cia Jurus, for the name title "Rookie to Watch!" Gabriel DuLuc is the first. He's I-0, in his early career. Gabriel, is from the Dominican Re- public and now from Dorchester. He fights out of the Cyr Farrell Boxing Gym of Quincy, trained by Martin Grealish. I observed trainer Martin Grealish put Gabriel DuLuc through a workout on the mitts. "Wow!" He's got talent. Very, very impressive. Great trainer Jimmy Farrell says? Martin Grealish is a great Rodriquez of Worcester, Mass. He's 18-0, 13 trainer. And Martin Grealish, speaks highly KO's. He has victories over Aaron Pryor, Jr., on Gabriel DeLuc. THE FIGHTING BOSTON BRUINS "CONGRATULATIONS[" I want to congratulate the Boston Bruins, who I will refer to as the Fighting Boston Bruins. I first saw their team as a very good team. I believed they would do very well in the season. They didn't do well, they did great! They won the Stanley Cup, in a well fought seven game series. They fought for victory in every game. From the start of their season to its end as Stanley Cup Champions. Fighting for victory as the best team in hockey. Every game they put effort IN NEW YORK, BOSTON, QUINCY, DORCHESTER, AND Joey DeGrandis, Kenny Butler, Jack Hurley, Johnny Gould, Jimbo Curran. They get around. They were in New York. Now they're in Dorchester at the Pugs' Luncheon Florian Hall with John Ford. into, demonstrating great ability. They believed in themselves and made believers out of fans. They performed with heart's of lions. Throughout their season they demonstrated courage, self belief, talent and character. An inspiration to the philoso- phy of "Veni, Vidi, Vici!" As a Boston fan. "They came! .... They saw! .... They con- quered!" Go 2011 Boston Bruins. You're a great team that "fought" their way "to the top!"

THINKING AHEAD -- It's been just a short time since the Bruins made their trium- phal way through the streets of Boston via the Duck Boats but already thoughts of next season have appeared on the horizon. The Bruins released their 2011-2012 regular season schedule in what seems to be a record time -- it's usually made public July rather than in the waning days of June -- and as usual it contains dates to ponder during these summer months. For example, the Bruins will face all three of their 2011 Stanley Cup Eastern Confer- ence playoff opponents at the Garden in October, the open- ing month of the season. Indeed, the schedule fea- tures two of them in the first homestand. The season will open on Thursday, October 6 at the Garden with the B's fac- ing the Flyers, the team they swept in the second round of this year's playoffs and de- feated in overtime in the 2010 Winter Classic at Fen- way Park. But the Flyers, as we all know, got revenge sev- eral months later when they bounced the B's out of the 2010 playoffs, despite Boston being up 3-0 at one point in games and leading 3-0 dur- ing Game 7. Thus, there is a lot of rivalry in this one. Two nights later on Satur- day, October 8, Tampa Bay comes to town, just months after playing the B's in what many consider the best NHL game played in the Garden perhaps since its opening in 1995. It was the 1-0 penalty free thriller in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals that 'propelled the Bruins into the Stanley Cup Finals against Vancouver. Then, when Bostonians cel- ebrate Columbus Day on Monday, October 10, Colorado will make its only visit of the season to the Garden. Later, as the month closes, Montreal will make its first visit of the season to Cause- way Street on Thursday, Oc- tober 27. Remember, it was Montreal that nearly derailed the Stanley Cup hopes of the Bruins in the opening round, taking the B's all the way into overtime in Game 7 before Nathan Horton scored the game winner. Two nights later -- Saturday, October 29 -- Boston will travel north of the border and visit the Habs for a contest in the Bell Cen- tre. As far as a rematch with Vancouver goes, it will take place in the Garden on Sat- urday, January 7 at 1 p.m. in what promises to be one of the most anticipated contests of the season. The Bruins will not play a road game in Vancouver during the regu- lar season, meaning the next matchup with the Canucks after the January game could only come in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Bruins will play the 2010 Stanley Cup Cham- pion Chicago Black Hawks in a January 15 road contest. Ottawa will host the All-Star game on January 30. Other games of note in- clude the annual day-after, Thanksgiving game -- this year featuring the Detroit Red Wings on November 25. A couple of additional holiday weekend contests of interest include the B's hosting the Florida Panthers on Martin Luther King Day (January 16) and the Flyers coming to Causeway Street once again on St. Patrick's Day night (Saturday, March 17). The B's will also host the New York Rangers on Valentine's Day night (Tuesday, February 14). Winnipeg is an NHL city once again (after acquiring the Atlanta franchise) and the Jets will visit Boston on November 26 -- one night after that game with the Red Wings -- making for a rare set of back-to-back home games. The Bruins will play at Winnipeg on December 6. The NHL's 1,230-game regular season will come to a close some six months after it begins (Saturday, April 7 with all 30 teams in action) with the Bruins hosting the Buffalo Sabres that day in a 3 p.m. start. Then it's on to the playoffs as the Bruins seek to successfully defend their Stanley Cup Champion- ship. B'S PARTIAL PRESEASON- Although the Bruins had not released their preseason schedule as of press time, Montreal and Ottawa had done so. Boston will play at Ottawa on September 21 and Ottawa will play at the Gar- den on September 29. The B's will meet Montreal in Halifax, Nova Scotia on September 25 with the two teams playing once again the next night (September 26) in Montreal. BU SCHEDULE -- Boston University has released its men's hockey schedule for the upcoming year. The slate features 13 Hockey East Con- ference home games and 14 HE road contests plus some non-conference games. Regular season action will get under way on October 8 when the Terriers host New Hampshire at Agganis Arena. A week later BU will play a non-conference game against perennial powerhouse Den- ver (25 victories last season). Another highlight will be the Red Hot Hockey game against Cornell at Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 26. BU will celebrate the com- ing of 2012 in South Bend, Indiana as it takes on Notre Dame in a New Year's Eve contest. Other highlights include encounters with arch rival Boston College and the annual Beanpot Tourna- ment. BU will play at BC on November 13 and December 2 with the Terriers hosting the Eagles on December 3. BU will play Harvard in the opening round of the Beanpot on February 6 and will face either BC or Northeastern on Monday, February 13. The Terriers will close the regular season at home against Northeastern on March 3.
