The Boston University men’s hockey team’s final tune-up for the 2016-17 season went about as well as anyone could have hoped.
Slated against the U.S. National Team Development Program on Thursday night at Agganis Arena, the Terriers skated to an 8-2 win. Patrick Harper (three goals) and Bobo Carpenter (two goals, three assists) stole the show, while Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson and Chad Krys both chipped in three helpers.

- And last but not least, here’s our preview again.
