The puck hasn't even dropped on Frozen Four weekend, but BC is already picking up hardware.
Thursday night at the Frozen Four banquet in Minneapolis, Coach Crowley was named ACHA Division 1 Coach of the Year, given annually to the top coach in Division 1 women's hockey.
Coach Crowley was already named Hockey East Coach of the Year early this month, and was named national coach of the year for leading BC to the nation's best record at 34-2-2, including a near-perfect 27-0-1 start to the season. The Eagles were #1 in the nation for the vast majority of the season and still hold the top spot in the USCHO poll heading into the Frozen Four in Minneapolis.
BC plays Harvard Friday night at 9pm ET at Ridder Arena in Minneapolis for the right to face either Minnesota or Wisconsin in the national championship game. Alex Carpenter is a finalist for the Patty Kazmaier award as well, which will be announced on Saturday.
With any luck, the Eagles might need to open up a new wing in Conte for this season's hardware. Congrats to Coach Crowley on being named national coach of the year!
