BU toppled BC, 10-5, in the 4th annual Comm Ave. Charity Classic at Walter Brown Arena last Friday. With “guests” Ryan Donato, Jimmy Vesey and Adam Gaudette in the line-up, BU led 3-1 after the first period, and 5-3 after two, paced by Donato’s hat trick. The Terriers pulled away in the third period on Evan Rodrigues’ second goal, a pair of scores from Jack Eichel and one from John McCarthy.

Graduate transfer Max Willman spoke with the Providence Journal about his decision to transfer from Brown to BU and about his recovery from the knee injury that limited him to nine games last season.  The Barnstable native, who was drafted by Buffalo in 2014 and attended Sabres development camp this summer, scored 26 points in 31 games for Brown in 2016-17

Looking back

We’ve added the highlight video of the 1978 NCAA championship game to the Video Highlights in the sidebar. The 5-3 win against Green Line rival Boston College—powered by two goals apiece from Mark Fidler and Tony Meagher— gave the Terriers their third national title. Highlights of all five BU national championships can now be accessed in the sidebar.

The video begins with player and coaching staff introductions from last December’s 40thanniversary reunion. Special thanks to the BU Athletics Department video team for preparing the highlight reel, which had been “lost” for many years.
