Game Day: Terriers visit Colgate--UPDATED

The #3/4 Terriers launch the 2016-17 campaign in Hamilton, N.Y., taking on the Colgate Red Raiders in their hosts’ new Class of 1965 Arena. Puck drop is at 6 p.m. ET and the game will be live-streamed, free of charge, on the Patriot League Network.

BU is making its first visit to Colgate since 1993. The teams last met in 2014-15 at Agganis Arena with the Terriers taking a 5-2 win, which gave them a 21-10 edge in the all-time series.

Colgate, which tied Army last weekend in its season opener, is led by top returning scorer junior Mike Panowyk and senior goalie Charlie Finn. Senior Tim Harrison and junior Evan Peterson each tallied eight goals last season.

Terriers displayed the potential for a high-octane offense in two exhibition games, scorching Prince Edward Island, 10-2, and defeating the NTDP U18s, 8-2. Freshman Patrick Harper produced eight of those tallies, while classmate Clayton Keller scored four times. Sophomore Bobo Carpenter and freshman Dante Fabbro each had two goals in the exhibitions.  Freshman defenseman Chad Krys recorded three assists in each game, while sophomore blueliner Charlie McAvoy had four helpers.
