Poll, Recognition, Bach delivers in Nations Cup--UPDATED

Terriers slipped from first to second in the USCHO weekly poll, despite garnering more first-place votes than North Dakota, which took over the top spot.  BU is also second in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.

Freshman Jack Eichel earned Hockey East’s Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Month honors for December. Eichel recorded six assists in three games, including helpers on all four BU goals in the 4-2 win against Merrimack. He’d previously earned R-O-M recognition in October as well as the Player of the Month award for November.

Junior Matt O’Connor was runner-up to Providence netminder Jon Gillies for the Stop It Goaltender of the Month award. The Toronto native posted a 1.30 GAA and a .958 save percentage in three games as BU went 2-0-1. O’Connor had earned the conference’s Defensive Player of the Week honors for the week of October 27.

With a pair of two-goal efforts, BU’s Victoria Bach has led Canada to the gold medal game of the Nation’s Cup in F├╝ssen, Germany. The freshman from Milton, Ontario, led Canada to a 4-1 victory over Finland (in which ex-Terrier Kaleigh Fratkin added a goal) and a 5-1 win over Russia (in which Sarah Lefort also scored a goal). Current senior Shannon Doyle and last year’s BU captain, Louise Warren, complete the Five-Terrier contingent among Canada’s 20 skaters. Canada meets Sweden in the final today.
