Autism Speaks and Boston University have teamed up once again for Autism Awareness! Both of the Boston University Ice Hockey Teams have games this Saturday, February 15, 2014 at Boston University’s Agganis Arena, which will be lit blue in honor of the games!
The women’s ice hockey team is coming off its best season in program history, as BU was an NCAA finalist and won its second straight Hockey East title in 2012-13. In 2013-14, the Terriers will look to advance to their fifth straight NCAA tournament and third Frozen Four in four seasons. The BU Women take on Providence at 3:00pm!
With five NCAA Division I national titles (tied for the most among Eastern schools) and 29 Beanpot championships, Boston University has long established itself as one of the top collegiate hockey programs in the country. Catch the game on NESN as they play New Hampshire at 7:00pm!
Reflecting on his experience volunteering with Autism Speaks, Garrett Noonan, BU Terrier Senior, said, “I think I’ll always mis the hockey in college, but I think when you’re at BU and you’re a part of Autism Speaks, you know how much it is a part of our team and I think I’ll definitely miss it… no matter where my hockey career goes, I’ll always be a part of Autism Speaks."
