From the FreeP: Chiasson nets game-winner in BU’s 2-1 win over Northeastern

By Scott McLaughlin/DFP Staff

The Beanpot Tournament always produces heroes, and they are not always who you would expect. Last night, that hero was freshman forward Alex Chiasson.

The St. Augustin, Quebec native scored what proved to be the game-winning goal with 5:47 remaining in the Boston University men’s hockey team’s 2-1 win over Northeastern University in the opening round of the 2010 Beanpot.

“Even if he didn’t score tonight, I thought he had a heck of a game tonight,” BU coach Jack Parker said of Chiasson. “He had the puck a lot, and he was controlling the puck along the wall, and he was making some good passes, he was getting the puck out of the zone, and he made a couple great backchecks.

“But then to get the winning goal is obviously a feather in his cap. It’s something he’ll remember, and it’s something I’ll remember.”
