Immaturity, mistakes lead to No. 6 BU loss to USNTDP

With 1:06 remaining on the clock in third period, freshman forward Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson skated to the penalty box with more than a hint of frustration for an interference call. Down three goals, both Forsbacka Karlsson and his teammates standing on the bench had the look of exasperation and disappointment. It was the fifth and final penalty for the No. […]

No. 6 men’s hockey welcomes Wisconsin, U.S. U-18 Team to Agganis Arena

With its second regular season game looming, the No. 6 Boston University men’s hockey team finds itself in a place it hasn’t been since the 2009-10 season: without a win. After a solid week of practice following a 5-3 loss to Union College on Oct. 10, the Terriers will look to correct previous mistakes. When they seek to avoid their […]

Slated against Pennsylvania State University, BU (3-1, 2-0 Hockey East) dropped a 5-3 decision Friday and then quickly rebounded to the tune of a 3-1 victory Saturday. However, […]

Erin O’Neil shines as No. 9 women’s hockey splits weekend set

The No. 9 Boston University women’s ice hockey team had a whirlwind weekend against Pennsylvania State University, beginning with a 5-3 defeat at Walter Brown Arena on Friday night.

Defenseman Doyle Somerby leads BU on offense against Union

SCHENECTADY, New York — Junior defenseman Doyle Somerby, standing at 6-foot-5 and weighing 225 pounds, is more renowned for his physicality. Last season, he had just seven total points on the year, and the year before that, he collected four. But in No. 3 Boston University’s 5-3 loss to Union College on Saturday, Somerby’s offensive prowess was a bright spot, […]

Union scores late, defeats No. 3 BU in season opener

SCHENECTADY, New York — New year, new lines and a new team. No matter the differences, the No. 3 Boston University has billed the mantra of attaining the same success last year, but winning that one last game to get the Terriers over the top. Back to the Frozen Four is the goal. Unfortunately, the Road to Tampa got off […]
