Terriers rise in polls
Following its 5-3 win over Harvard, BU’s poll stock moved up with a #6 ranking in the USCHO poll and a #5 ranking in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.
A pair of freshmen, defenseman Dante Fabbro and forward Patrick Curry, earned places on Hockey East’s Weekly Top Performers list.
Junior Nina Rodgers, who had a league-best five points in the weekend sweep of Princeton, was named the Hockey East Warrior Player of the Week. A transfer from Minnesota, Rodgers has 14 points in 16 games. Senior Victoria Hanson, who has three starts, and freshman Abby Cook, who scored her first NCAA goal, made the weekly Top Performers list.
