Dom Fensore commits to men’s hockey

Defenseman Dom Fensore has committed to Boston University after decommitting from Quinnipiac University earlier this week. He is expected to join the Terriers for the 2019 season.

The NDTP defenseman has been described as a puck-moving offensive defenseman and is one of the top 01 defensemen in the country. He is the first major recruiting victory since head coach  Albie O’Connell took over for New York Rangers head coach David Quinn.

The Thornwood, New York native has been praised for his skating ability and his footwork.

One cause for concern about Fensore is his size. However, he has managed to turn his frame into an advantage.

He is the latest commit from the U.S National Under-17 team for BU that currently includes defensemen Alex Vlasic, Case McCarthy and forward Travis Zegras.

From the FreeP: Opening Weekend Roundup

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.
