The Boston University Terriers have one of the oldest ice hockey programs in the NCAA. The first Terriers team took to the ice in its inaugural 1917-1918 season under the leadership of Edgar Burkhardt. Since then, Boston University has built an incredible record on the ice. The Terriers have made it to the NCAA tournament more than 35 times. Between 2014-15 and 2017-18, the Terriers had four consecutive seasons with 20-plus-wins. Today, the ice hockey program is in transition. Under the leadership of coach Albie O'Connell, the Terriers have been rebuilding. Notably, the team placed second in the 2020 Boston Beanpot tournament held in February. The Terriers lost in double overtime to Northeastern but fans and players alike remain hungry for another win.
