Moving on up

Terriers move up to #2 in both national polls after Saturday’s 6-1 win against Colgate. BU received five first-place votes (out of 50) in the USCHO poll and six first-place votes (out of 34) in the USA Today/USA Hockey Poll.  BU’s next opponent, Denver, dropped both games at the IceBreaker Tournament, which the Pioneers hosted, and fell to #10 in both polls. BU also is #2 in the weekly poll from ESPN's John Buccigross.
Following the win at Colgate, three Terrier rookies were named to Hockey East’s Weekly Top Performers: Patrick Harper (photo, two goals); Clayton Keller (a goal and an assist) and Jake Oettinger (29 saves).

NeutralZone.net has issued 2016 recruiting class rankings with BU occupying the top spot by a substantial margin. Three other Hockey East schools cracked the top seven: BC #4, Providence #5 and Northeastern #7.

Looking forward
2017 recruit Hank Crone guested on The Fargo Force Show (video) last week. The left-shot forward from Cedar Hill, Tex., who previously starred with the Dallas Stars Elite and played in the 2015 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, scored two goals and added an assist in a 4-2 win against Dubuque on Saturday. Last season he scored 17 goals and 24 assists in 62 games.

2018 recruit Tyler Weiss's first goal of the season in the NTDP U17s' 6-3 loss to Des Moines (1:00 mark of video). The left wing from Raleigh, N.C., has six points in nine games.

Women’s Team
Terriers dropped a 3-2 decision to Vermont on Sunday in Gutterson Field House in Burlington. The Catamounts jumped to a 2-1 lead after one with senior Samantha Sutherland scoring for BU, assisted by sophomore Sammy Davis and freshman Abby Cook. Sutherland's second goal—and seventh of the season—tied the score midway through the third, but Vermont replied with the game-winner just minutes later and held on for the win. Goalie Victoria Hanson stopped 36 shots for BU, which falls to 2-1-0.
