Looking for playoff home ice; Dman commits for 2019

Terriers enter the final weekend of the season guaranteed to finish no worse than fifth in Hockey East. To move up to third or fourth, BU will need to beat Maine in Orono on Saturday and will need some help to leapfrog Lowell and/or Northeastern.  The Huskies will host UNH, while Lowell travels to Vermont—both on Friday, so BU will know what its chances are before taking the ice against the Black Bears.

All the scenarios that would give BU home ice are spelled out in the WTBU Sports preview linked below.

Looking ahead

BU added to the blue line corps in its 2019 recruit class with a verbal commitment from Sean Driscoll, a 6’2” left shot currently in his second season with NAHL Janesville.  A ’98 birthdate from Mequon, Wisconsin, he has 24 points in 48 games.
️Sean Driscoll to the Terriers. Experienced, direct puck moving D. Athletic player, skates well with and without the puck. Balanced when he defends at 6'2". Stays square and keeps tight gaps. B+ in upcoming NAHL Top Prospects Report.👤
