Heading to the Garden
BU Today spoke with senior assistant captain Danny O’Regan about playing in his final Beanpot Tournament. O’Regan scored the double-overtime game-winner in last year’s Beanpot semifinal against Harvard. (video) The San Jose draft pick and his father, Tom O’Regan, who co-captained the 1982-83 Terriers, are the only father and son duo to each score 50 goals in Division 1 hockey.
It’s also the final Beanpot for senior Mike Moran who spoke with the Patriot Ledger about the tournament. Last year Moran scored BU’s first goal in the championship game won by the Terriers in overtime, 4-3 (video).
