Game Day: Terriers host Yale--UPDATED

#6 Terriers host Yale tonight at Agganis Arena in the final game of the first semester. Puck drop is at 7 pm for the contest that will be live-streamed, free of charge.

The Bulldogs, who edged BU 3-2 last season in New Haven, bring a 4-5-2 record into the contest after defeating Rensselaer and losing to Union this past weekend.  Both teams will be playing their third game in five days.

The All-Time series between the schools is deadlocked at 31-31-3 after last year’s Bulldogs’ win ended a nine-game (7-0-2) BU unbeaten streak that included the 3-2 overtime win in the 2015 NCAA regionals.

Senior John Hayden, who scored twice against BU last season, and sophomore Joe Snively are Yale points co-leaders with 15 each, while junior Ryan Hitchcock has 12. Senior Patrick Spano has taken over in net for graduated Alex Lyon.

For BU, freshman Jake Oettinger is expected to start in goal again coming off his shutout of Vermont.  Freshman defenseman Dante Fabbro is in Quebec at Canada’s tryout camp for the World Junior Championships team and junior John MacLeod remains unavailable due to an injury.

Looking ahead
Three Terrier recruits have been selected to play in the 2017 USHL/Top Prospects Game set for January 10 in Sioux Falls. Defenseman Kasper Kotkansalo (2017 recruit) and forward Matthew Quercia will be right at home as they play for the host Stampede. The third recruit is Waterloo’s Shane Bowers (2017), an “A” rated forward by Central Scouting for the June entry draft.
