While he may be the Terriers’ youngest member, Logan Gatto has been a driving force for Boston University the entire season. Whether he’s roaring through warmups or rushing the ice after a victory, the seven-year-old is a spark for the team and constant reminder that hockey is far more than a sport. 

“For us, as parents, watching this relationship grow and flourish has just been so cool and shocking in the best way possible,” Logan’s mom Sara Gatto, said. “And for him, he literally has a whole team of basically big brothers.”
