The No. 11 Boston University men’s ice hockey team will welcome Notre Dame to Agganis Arena for the first time since 2017 when the two teams take the ice on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
- BU enters Wednesday having split a weekend series with then-No. 18/16 Northeastern, rebounding from a 2-0 home loss with a thrilling 4-3 overtime victory at Matthews Arena.
- Freshman Lane Hutson was named Hockey East Rookie of the Week for the second time this season after he scored his second overtime-winning goal of the season.
- Hutson also assisted on classmate Ryan Greene’s third-period equalizer for his fourth multi-point game of the season.
- The reigning Hockey East Defender of the Month is currently tied for the team lead with eight assists and is tied for second on the squad with 12 points. No other Hockey East freshman has more assists than Hutson.

- Senior Matt Brown lit the lamp in the win at Northeastern and leads BU with 14 points, sitting tied with both Greene and Hutson in goals and assists, respectively.
- Senior Domenick Fensore found the back of the net and had the primary helper on Greene’s game-tying goal.
- Junior Drew Commesso made 30 saves, including five in a frantic overtime period, to earn the win on Saturday. He only allowed one goal in a hard-luck loss the previous night.
