Marie-Philip Poulin breaks into NHL

Marie-Philip Poulin has been a force to be reckoned with since lacing up her hockey skates for the first time at five years old. The Beauceville, Quebec native made a prominent mark in Terrier history while playing for the Boston University women’s hockey team from 2010 to 2015.

Just two months after being selected in a round so late it no longer exists, Grier’s journey would pass through Commonwealth Ave. Upon his departure just three seasons later, Grier had left a National Champion and all-time great Terrier poised to jump into the professional ranks.
