Game Day: Terriers host Bentley University--UPDATED

Following the weekend split with Michigan, BU is back on the ice for a pre-Thanksgiving match-up with Bentley. Puck drop at Agganis Arena is at 7 p.m.

In the team’s only previous meeting in December of 2013, a lackluster Terrier performance led to a 4-1 Bentley win.

The Falcons are led by junior Max French and sophomore Kyle Schmidt with 11 points each and their senior linemate, Andrew Gladiuk, with nine. Sophomore goalie Jayson Argue ranks ninth in the nation with a .941 save percentage.

Senior assistant captain Danny O'Regan leads BU with 15 points, while senior Ahti Oksanen has a team-high seven goals and freshman Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson has 12 points.
