We have previewed each class of Boston College men’s hockey players this week (read our juniors, sophomores and first year previews), but now it is time to cover the leaders of the program, the people who have been around for time and time again, the seniors.
This year, there are two, and boy they are big ones. Let’s get to it, shall we?
No. 2, Michael Karow, D: Karow has been an important depth player for the Eagles who plays reliable, gritty minutes that often don’t show up on the scoresheet. Karow is known to to put up a number of blocked shots (he was fourth in the team in blocked shots last year) and was a decently reliable player on the blue line. With the D corps skewing a lot younger this year, Karow will play an important leadership role.
No. 9, Logan Hutsko, F: It’s hard to overstate how important Logan Hutsko has been to the Eagles over the past three seasons. One of the three players on the Cotton-Mattila-Hutsko line— one of the best in recent memory for BC— Hutsko has been one of the best goal scorers in the country for all three seasons on the Heights, and this year shapes up to be no exception. There is an awful lot of talent for the Eagles this year in the forward corps, but Hutsko should be expected to take charge.
