Looks like the Priviteras will be teammates this season after all.
Former Boston University defenseman Alexx Privitera, as well as his brother, forward Jarrid Privitera, will both play for the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League during the 2013-14 season, Jarrid told The Daily Free Press on Tuesday.
Earlier this summer, Alexx decided to leave the BU hockey program after a tumultuous sophomore campaign. He had been suspended by then-head coach Jack Parker in mid-February for the final 13 games after a number of on-ice discipline incidents.
Jarrid, who had been set to arrive on Commonwealth Avenue this fall, decommitted at the same time.
This season will be Jarrid's second full one with Dubuque. He put up 15 goals and 11 assists with the Fighting Saints in 2012-13 en route to his team capturing the Clark Cup, the league's top trophy.
It will also be Alexx's second stint in the USHL. The blueliner had 34 points (10 goals, 24 assists) and 123 penalty minutes in 57 games for the Muskegon Lumberjacks in 2010-11.
In his two years as a Terrier, Alexx had six goals and 20 assists while playing in 48 out of a possible 78 games, missing time due to both injury and suspension.
