The senior class of the Boston College hockey team, including Washington Capitals top defensive prospect Patrick Wey, has become the first in university history to win all four of their Beanpot tournaments.
The tournament — which decides Boston’s top hockey school among Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, and Northeastern — has been held annually since the 1952-53 season. Overall, Boston College has won the tournament 18 times, while rival Boston University has won it the most (29).
Yesterday, Boston College, led by high-scoring sophomore Johnny Gaudreau, beat Northeastern University 6-3 en route to its fourth-straight title.
Highlights of the game are past the jump.
Wey, a shutdown defenseman from Pittsburgh who was played on BC’s second pairing with freshman Teddy Doherty, did not record any points, but did have two shots on net. Wey appeared in all but one Beanpot tournament during his tenure with the Eagles. His freshman year he was held out due to injury.
This is the second tournament Boston College has won this year. A few months earlier, they beat Notre Dame on their way to the Holy War On Ice victory.
Among players that are currently in the Capitals organization, two have won the Beanpot tournament in the past: Tom Poti (twice with Boston University) and Hershey Bear Barry Almeida (three times with Boston College).
