From The FreeP: BU earns top spot in Hockey East preseason poll

The Boston Hockey Blog crew swung by TD Garden on Tuesday for Hockey East’s media day.

Coaches and captains were in attendance, and the league announced the Boston University men’s hockey team took home the top spot in the preseason poll. For BU’s purposes, that meant we got some reactions from head coach David Quinn, captain Doyle Somerby and the assistant captains in Nikolas Olsson and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson.

Here’s our article on the poll, as well as some thoughts on Hockey East as a whole. You can also find the complete poll below:

A couple quick housekeeping items, too:

  • We’re looking to start a BU hockey newsletter. If that’s something you’re interested, feel free to provide some brief information here.
  • The Terriers get their season underway this Saturday with a scrimmage against the University of Prince Edward Island. The game is at 7 p.m. at Agganis Arena.
  • Our annual Hockey Preview goes live next Thursday, Oct. 6. Keep an eye out for a complete, in-depth look at this year’s scarlet and white.
