For the third time in the past five seasons, a Terrier is the recipient of the NCAA’s Tim Taylor Award for National Rookie of the Year. Joel Farabee, who led BU in both goals and points (37), adds this NCAA recognition to Hockey East honors: Rookie of the Year, All Hockey East Rookie Team and three Hockey East Rookie of the Week selections.
Like recent NCAA top rookie winners Jack Eichel (2015) and Clayton Keller (2017), Farabee is departing for the NHL after one season, having signed an entry-level contract with Philadelphia, which had drafted him 14thoverall in the 2018 draft. Kieran Millan, who backboned BU’s most recent NCAA championship, was the Taylor Award winner in 2009.
