Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

A Boston tradition continues Monday with a new wrinkle added to the mix for fans to enjoy.

In the first game, Boston College (9-10-6) will face Harvard (15-6-1), ranked No. 8 in the latest USCHO Top 20 rankings, at 5 p.m. The defending champion, No. 3 Boston University (20-6), will face Northeastern (13-10-3) in the nightcap at 8 p.m. The consolation and championship will take place Feb. 13 at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively.

What’s the new addition, you ask?

2022 Beanpot Recap

Boston University claimed its first Beanpot title since 2015 with a thrilling 1-0 victory over Northeastern, thanks to forward Dylan Peterson’s game-winning goal. Goaltender Vinny Duplessis recorded 19 saves for the Terriers to earn the win.

The matchup marked the second consecutive Beanpot Tournament â€” and third of the last four — in which Boston University faced Northeastern in the final.

With this year’s pairings, that obviously won’t happen this year.
