Introducing the 2015-16 Terriers; Inside BU Hockey Episode 1--UPDATED

The Daily Free Press has published its annual hockey preview issue and has done an exceptional job of over-viewing the upcoming season and focusing on some of the players who may be keys to the Terriers’ goal of more tournament hardware and a return to the Frozen Four. You can look at the individual articles below or find the entire preview issue in pdf form here.  (Note: Women’s Team articles are linked further down.)

Looking back
To no one’s surprise, Hobey Baker Award winner Jack Eichel, who was the second draft pick overall in June, is set to center the Sabres second line and will become the 72nd Terrier to play in an NHL game.  Matt O’Connor, who signed a free-agent deal with Ottawa, was expected to begin his pro career in AHL Binghamton, but with an injury to the Senators’ backup goalie, the 6’6” netminder, who earned second team All-Hockey East last season, made the opening roster and with the Senators playing three games in four nights, he may get a start this week. Tonight, Eichel’s Sabres take on the Senators, with OC watching from the bench.

UPDATE: Eichel scored his first NHL goal, but it was the Sabres only goal in a 3-1 loss.
