According to BU Today, the school newspaper at Boston University, Islanders draft pick Corey Trivino was arrested on Sunday night and charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery, two counts of breaking and entering in the nighttime and one count of assault with attempt to rape. He has been kicked off the hockey team, effective immediately.
From BU Today:
Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney Cameron Merrill told the court that witnesses claim that an apparently intoxicated Trivino pushed his way into the room of a female student at 10 Buick St. 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, whose family flew in for his arraignment, appeared in court in handcuffs and a powder blue hoodie. He never spoke, standing hunched forward and head down throughout the court proceeding.
Head hockey coach Jack Parker says Trivino has been permanently removed from the team. “He is no longer associated with the BU hockey team,” says Parker (SMG’68, Hon.’97).
Trivino, a senior on the Terrier hockey team, was leading the team with 13 goals and 17 points in 15 games. He was originally drafted by the Islanders in the second round of the 2008 entry draft. Trivino had rebounded nicely this season on the ice after breaking his leg in February 2010 and would have had a shot at making the Bridgeport roster next year.
The arrest is another hurdle in Trivino’s life to overcome, although this one is decidedly different than the others. Trivino has been injury riddled throughout his BU career. During his freshman season at Boston University, he tore his MCL. In his sophomore year, he broke an ankle at the end of the year and, as mentioned, he broke his leg during his junior year last February. Now, the problems aren’t with his health, they’re with the law.
