From the FreeP: Fan support propels men’s hockey (Notebook)

By Tim Healey/DFP Staff

While the men’s hockey team’s fan base has traditionally been strong, recently there has been a consistent and growing contingent of fans attending games, both home and away.

The group of student fans, which calls itself “The Dog Pound” and has taken to social media to rally the troops, has not gone unnoticed by the team. Last week, BU coach Jack Parker sent the fan group a thank you note for its attendance at games at Northeastern University on Jan. 13 and Harvard University on Jan. 14.

“I just wanted to thank you and let you know how much our team appreciated your support at our games at Northeastern and Harvard,” Parker wrote in a letter addressed to Terrier Nation. “After both games, I heard several of our players talk about how great the fan support was and how it helped us pick up those key wins.”
