ORONO – Maine faces one of the top goaltenders in the country when it travels to Chestnut Hill this weekend.
The Black Bears swept the season series against the Eagles last season, including a 7-2 win on the road. The new look Boston College team is currently the fourth-ranked team in the nation, thanks in large part to their freshman goalie Spencer Knight. Knight was drafted in the first round of the 2019 NHL Draft, and is a nominee for the Hobey Baker Award, awarded to the best player in men’s college hockey.
Jeremy Swayman has continued to be consistent for Maine in goal, currently 25th in the country for average goals allowed.
