Boston Globe reports details from task force investigation

When the hockey task force released its findings on Wednesday, it said there is “a culture of sexual entitlement” among some players on the team. Those findings were further detailed in a report from the Boston Globe on Friday, which cited investigation documents and described multiple incidents that reflected that statement.

Among these incidents was a female student who told the task force that a player had “shoved his hands down her pants at a party and refused to stop even as she was punching him.”

The story also notes a student who mentioned a Facebook posting in which hockey players refer to their sexual conquests as “kills.”

According to the Globe, there was a post-NCAA championship party at Agganis Arena in 2009 in which “dozens of guests drank from kegs in the locker room showers and took to the ice naked to shoot pucks.” BU coach Jack Parker initially denied hearing about the party, but later admitted he knew of “a few guys drinking in the locker room.”

Later in the article, Parker was criticized by a team member, who said he “cares too much about hurting the important players’ feelings … He’ll criticize, then apologize.”

The team is not commenting on the story at this time.
