Player of the Week honors for O'Regan; 2018 trio win Youth Olympic gold

Senior assistant captain Danny O’Regan was named Hockey East’s Warrior Player of the Week following his four-goal performance in two games against New Hampshire. With 146 career points, O’Regan is within one point of tying Pete MacArthur for most career points since 2000. He's also top active NCAA scorer. Captain Matt Grzelcyk (1G, 2A) and freshman Jordan Greenway (3A) were named to the weekly top performers list.

Terriers remain at #9 in both weekly polls: USCHO and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine. In the PairWise rankings, BU is tied for eighth with Denver and next weekend’s opponent, Notre Dame.

Looking back
Thirty-six years ago today, Mike Eruzione fired the shot heard ‘round the hockey world, Jimmy Craig barred the door and you know the rest. Jack O’Callahan and David Silk completed the Terrier gold-medal quarter. Always fun to relive that final minute with Al Michael’s classic call.
