Hold off on that Demko for Hobey campaign. According toThe Boston College Hockey Blog, junior Brian Billett has been named the starting goalie for Thursday night's season opener in Michigan.
I would personally still probably expect to see Demko on Sunday and see these two split time until someone emerges, but it looks like Billett will be given the first crack at making that statement.
Billett has appeared in 10 games for BC over his first two seasons. In his freshman year, he went 3-4-1, including a 40-save performance in a victory at Agganis Arena. He posted a 2.66 GAA and .907 SV% before Parker Milner took the reins as the starter for the stretch run.
Billett made two appearances last year, starting a losing a tough game in Maine, and coming in in relief during BC's blowout loss at Minnesota.
