Looking ahead
2020 recruit Josh Lawrence is the leading scorer for Selects Academy @SKU 16U, which is the #9-ranked Tier1 Midget 16U team. The 5'9" right wing from Fredericton, New Brunswick has a 15-24-39 scoring line in 18 games. He was recently ranked #3 for the 2018 QMJHL draft with this comment: "Lawrence for a smaller player plays big and very skilled, works his butt off both ends of the ice and makes things happen offensively."

Looking back
Former BU captain and All-American Kevin Shattenkirk is skating in his 500th NHL game in tonight's Rangers-Sharks game. Shattenkirk signed a four-year, $26.6 million free-agent deal with New York over the summer.'s Mike Morreale talks with Charlie McAvoy three weeks into his first full NHL season. The blueliner from Long Beach, NY, who appeared in six playoff games for Boston last Spring, is third on the Bruins in scoring with seven points and is averaging just over 21 minutes per game. 

Former BU captain Pete MacArthur assisted on a pair of goals for the Allen Americans who dropped a 4-3 overtime decision to Orlando.

Women’s Team
Terriers gained their first victory with a 6-2 win against Connecticut  powered by senior captain Rebecca Leslie’s hat trick. The Huskies took an early 1-0 lead; but midway through the first period, BU scored twice within a 1:18 span on goals by freshman Nara Elia and senior Victoria Bach.

UConn tied the score in the second, but Leslie’s first tally restored the lead at 3-2. She scored again in the opening minute of the third, and after senior Nina Rodgers extended the lead to 5-2, Leslie completed her hat trick late in the period.
Freshman Corrine Schroeder made 26 saves to gain her first NCAA win.
