Looking ahead
Daily Free Press writer Jonathan Sigal talked with 2017 recruit Ty Amonte--for a NE Hockey Journal feature--about the path that will lead him to Commonwealth Avenue next fall. The former Thayer Academy standout is spending a season in the BCHL and has 29 points in 36 games for the Penticton Vees.

Looking back

This Date in Terrier Hockey
On Dec. 31, 1994, BU defeated Minnesota, 4-3, on Ken Rausch’s overtime goal to win the Mariucci Classic. The win was the first of four tournament titles culminating in the 1995 national championship. Rausch (bio) is currently Director of Youth Hockey for USA Hockey as well as general manager of the NTDP U17 team.
