“I thought we played pretty well in the first period, despite being down 2-1. We got on our heels when UNH scored early in the second and we got out of sync. We were missing on passes everywhere. We didn’t create any pressure on them from the second half of them game on. DeSmith played well when he needed and we missed the net a few times.”
2013 recruit Brendan Collier scored a goal and two assists in the Valley Junior Warriors' 6-3 win against the Islanders. Collier is the Warriors leading scorer with a 6-8-14 line in 13 EJHL games.

Boston.com talked with Warriors coach Andy Heinze about Collier, who was drafted by Carolina in the 2012 NHL draft. Noting Collier's "tremendous vision and feel for the game," Heinze added:
"He’s just such a smart player, and he’s talented enough to score at this level, I would expect him to do the same at BU. He is that good.”
