#9/7 Terriers head up the Green Line for the 288th all-time meeting--and first of this season--with BC at Conte Forum. Puck drop is a 7 p.m. for the contest that will air on ESPNews and will be streamed on ESPN+.

Calling the game for ESPN tonight are John Buccigross and former Terrier All-American Colby Cohen.

BC will be honoring long-time coach Jerry York, who retired after 50 seasons of coaching including the last 28 at the Heights, between the first two period.

The 5-5-4 Eagles are coming off a pair of ties against Providence and are 3-1-3 in their last seven games. Freshman Cutter Gauthier, a Flyers' first-round draft pick who went to Philly development camp with BU's Devin Kaplan, leads BC in both goals (8) and points 12. Three juniors, Trevor Kuntar, Nikita Nesterenko and Colby Ambrosio each have 11 points. Senior captain Marshall Warren anchors the defense. In goal, grad transfer from Colgate Mitch Benson has a 2.49 GAA and a .909 save percentage.

BC's power play is clicking at a 22.5% rate while the PK is at 85.7%.

BU's offense is led by senior forward Matt Brown (7-11-18) and freshman defenseman Lane Hutson (6-11-18). Captain Dom Fensore has 13 points, while senior Jay O'Brien and freshman Quinn Hutson each have 11. Terriers will be without freshman center Ryan Greene who is headed to Canada's Junior National Team tryout camp in Moncton, NB. Junior Nick Zabaneh take a regular shift at center.

Goalie Drew Commesso had returned to practice after an illness, but as of Thursday had not yet been cleared to return to the line-up. Vinnie Duplessis shut out New Hampshire last Saturday as BU completed a two-game sweep. preview, Game Notes, Live Stats, BU All-Access (audio broadcast), BU Men’s Hockey Twitter
