Boston University Men’s Hockey won its first Beanpot title since 2015 on Monday, beating Northeastern 1-0 on a late Dylan Peterson goal.
Peterson – who was drafted by the Blues with the 86th overall pick in 2020 – scored his eighth goal of the season and the opening goal of the game with 2:46 left to give BU a 1-0 lead. Junior Jamie Anderson assisted on the play after carrying the puck down the ice.
The Terriers escaped the final two minutes unscathed and won their 31st Beanpot title in school history, the most of any school. Boston College trails with 20, while Northeastern’s three-game streak — which the Terriers snapped on Monday — took the Huskies to seven.
The win was BU head coach Albie O’Connell’s first.
“I’m happier for the guys,” O’Connell said after the game, according to NESN. “For me, I’m just excited that we won the hockey game. I’m excited for the fans. I’m excited for the group, which was hitting hard up there tonight. So I’m happy for the guys.
BU dominated the North East 29-19. Second-year goaltender Vinny Duplessis finished with a 19-save shutout. The Terriers have improved to 17-10-3 this season and 13-1-1 in their last 15 games.
Here’s how the Terriers celebrated their victory.
