E-Rod named Hockey Co-Player of the Week
With a goal in both weekend games against BC, sophomore Evan Rodrigues was named Hockey East co-Player of the Week. Making the top performers list were Matt Grzeyck, Cason Hohmann, Wade Megan and Matt O’Connor.
Terriers moved up again in the national rankings, now tied for 7th in the USCHO poll. And they moved up a notch in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll to 9th. BU’s next opponent, New Hampshire took over the top spot in both polls, so on Thursday for the third consecutive game, BU will face the nation’s top-ranked team.
