Boston College Hockey Visits The White House

On Monday, the National Champion Eagles men's ice hockey team traveled to Washington DC where they were honored by the President at the White House. The Eagles were similiarly honored by President Bush in 2001 and 2008 following their National Championship seasons. Hopefully with the changeover in administration, this year's visit to the White House will lead in a repeat performance for the Eagles.

Here is video of the event from NECN:

 

This link is several weeks old now, but more of the Cody Ferriero decommitment story was published in the Herald last month. Apparently, Ferriero's favorite song is this 1980s smash hit by Olivia Newton-John, as the kid wanted to get physical:

"It just didn’t seem like it would be the right fit for me at BC. BC is a great school, but it had to do with the hockey. I feel like my style will be more effective at Northeastern. I like to play physical and do a little bit of everything. BC lets their forwards handle the puck and everything, but they tend to play a little less physical."

Reportedly Ferriero had nothing but good things to say about the Eagles program, so I won't pile it on the kid too much. But this can't be the whole story, can it? I wish Ferriero nothing but the best with his career at Northeastern, but there seems to be more behind the story than what the Herald reported.

 

USCHO took a look at the men's hockey programs who are still looking for their first National Championship. Among them were profiles of Hockey East's Vermont and New Hampshire. Pretty surprising to learn that only 17 of 58 Division I programs have ever won a title, putting BC in some pretty elite company. Big names on the title-drought list include Miami, New Hampshire, Notre Dame and Ohio State.
