BU end-of-season banquet today; Terrier recruits shine at U18s

The Terriers’ end-of-the-season banquet is being held today. Check back tonight for award winners and other announcements.

World U18 Championships

Kieffer Bellows scored a goal, Clayton Keller had two assists and Chad Krys added one helper in Team USA’s 6-1 win over Sweden in the IIHF World U18 Championships in Grand Forks.

Early in the second period, Bellows was sent in alone and beat the Swedish goalie for what would be the game-winner.  Later in the period, Keller’s center-ice pass set up JD Greenway (Jordan Greenway’s younger brother) for a highlight-reel short-hander. In the third period Keller and Chad Krys assisted on a power play goal that closed out the scoring.

With his two assists, Keller has 98 points this season and is tied with Phil Kessel for the all-time NTDP points scoring record of 180.

Team USA plays its third preliminary round game today against Latvia. The game airs live on NHL Network at 4 p.m. ET.
