This weekend the Boston University men’s hockey team held its first ever season opener in the month of September. The Terriers beat Union College 4-1 on Saturday night after a three-point (2g, 1a) performance from sophomore forward Patrick Harper and game-winning goal notched by sophomore defenseman Dante Fabbro.
On Sunday night, BU didn’t have the same luck against the University of Prince Edward Island during its exhibition game. After five minutes of overtime, the game ended in a 5-5 draw. However, the Terriers continued to have a productive power play with four power-play goals after scoring two during opening night, and freshman forward Brady Tkachuk and sophomore defenseman Chad Krys each tallied three points.
BU’s next matchup will be against Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut at 2 p.m. on Sunday (Oct. 8). Tune in to the live blog for updates.
