Islanders Prospect Trivino Arrested; Kicked Off BU Hockey Team
Islanders prospect Corey Trivino was arrested late Sunday night on three accounts of indecent assault and battery, and one account of rape. Art Jahnke of BU Today reported:
"Corey Trivino (MET’12), the leading scorer in Hockey East, was also charged with two counts of breaking and entering in the nighttime and one count of assault with attempt to rape. Trivino, a Toronto native, pleaded not guilty to all charges at his arraignment yesterday in Brighton District Court. Judge David T. Donnelly set bail at $25,000 or surrender of Trivino’s Canadian passport and ordered Trivino to leave his BU dormitory room by 3 p.m. yesterday. Donnelly ordered a “status check” of the case on January 18.
Trivino pushed his way into the room of a female student...and started kissing her and fondling her against her will. Trivino reportedly left the room at the student’s insistence, and she called the Boston University Police at about 11 p.m. Police arrived a short time later and placed Trivino under arrest."
Trivino, the 21 year old Senior was kicked off of the Boston University hockey team after the team was notified of these allegations. Trivino was drafted in the second round of the 2008 National Hockey League Entry Draft (36th Overall).
The Terrier's head hockey coach, Jack Parker, was quoted as saying "He is no longer associated with the BU hockey team."
Trivino has had a fantastic season this year with the BU Terriers. In 15 games, Trivino had 13 goals and 4 assists, leading not only his team in scoring, but the Hockey East as well.
I'm confident there is much more to this story as it is still only developing. Trivino could be a star player in the near future for the New York Islanders but after this situation, it will be interesting to see whether it could cost him his future in the NHL.
