Saturday’s 3-2 win over Providence College was a big one for Boston College. The Eagles clinched their 5th consecutive Hockey East regular season title, but Katie Burt might pulled off an even more impressive feat.
Today's victory was Katie Burt's 115th career win. She is now the sole @NCAAIceHockey career wins record holder. Congratulations, Burt!! pic.twitter.com/6tetVkFzTS— BC Women's Hockey (@BC_WHockey) January 27, 2018
Katie Burt backstopped the Eagles to her 115th career victory, setting the NCAA women’s hockey record and passing Minnesota legend Noora Räty, who Burt tied last night.
Early in Burt’s career, it was pretty clear that she was destined to break some records. Burt became both the youngest and fastest to 50 wins in NCAA history back in 2016 as an 18 (!) year old sophomore.

With the career wins milestone behind her, Burt will now set her sights on that national championship that has eluded the Eagles for so long. And if the Eagles can win every game on their way to the title (obviously a tall task), Burt will also tie the career NCAA men’s hockey wins record currently held by Michigan’s Marty Turco with 127.

Congratulations to Katie Burt, and hopefully she’s got several more big wins left in her for the Eagles this season!
