Drunk Hockey Phenom Iced For "Attempted Rape"

Boston University's top scorer is arrested and kicked off the team.

Corey Trivino has been sent to the penalty box for good. A Boston University hockey star who leads the Hockey East conference in scoring, Trivino was kicked off the team this week after an arrest Sunday on charges of breaking and entering as well as assault with attempt to rape. 

The charges against the 21-year-old stem from an incident Sunday night in which he drunkenly entered a female student's room without her permission and started kissing and fondling her, also without her permission. BU's hockey coach Jack Parker acted swiftly in booting Trivino from the team. As of today "he is no longer associated with the BU hockey team," Parker said yesterday.

It's a big loss for BU, but not a surprising turn for the junior, whose alcohol issues have previously led to trouble with his coach. “There is no question in my mind it's an alcohol problem,” Parker told the school's newspaper yesterday. “I did [ask him to get treatment], but he didn’t think it was for him.” Parker added that he warned Trivino back in September that one more alcohol related incident would lead to his suspension. 

Trivino's last game in a BU jersey was also the first multi-goal game of his collegiate career.
