Ice Breaker Ahead

Nine weeks from tonight, the 2010-11 BU Hockey season begins with the Terriers facing off against Wisconsin in the Ice Breaker Tournament in St. Louis. BU has begun a campaign in The Gateway City only once before, 1970-71, when the Terriers helped the St. Louis University Billikens launch their D-1 program. Terriers came away with 8-0 and 9-1 wins to ignite a season that ended with a 28-2-1 record and BU’s first national championship.

2010 Women's Hockey recruit class announced

We hope to have the official announcement of the men's recruit class very soon. Yesterday BU announced the ten-member women's team recruit class. With eight freshmen and two transfers, Coach Brian Durocher, co-captain of BU's 1977-78 national champions, has assembled one of the top groups in the nation. Included are two members of the 2010 Canadian gold-medal winning Olympic team, Marie-Philip Poulin and Catherine Ward, and an alternate from that team, Jenn Wakefield, wh has transferred from New Hampshire. Two seasons ago, she was a top-10 finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award (the women's version of the Hobey Baker Award). Last season, BU's women's team won its first Hockey East title and made its first appearance in the NCAA tournament.
