With Roy and his fellow upperclassmen providing leadership on the ice, freshman goalie Ryan Ruck said he thrived off having such a central group of leaders to show younger players the ropes of college hockey. Now boasting a record of 20-10-4, Ruck has emerged as the go-to guy in the cage for NU.
“For myself, personally, with the leadership coming in, guys like Kevin [Roy] and the rest of the seniors make it pretty easy by showing us what to do when we’re down,” Ruck said. “It’s a great group of guys, and I couldn’t be happier.”
Production came from up and down NU’s lineup in both games. Led by Stevens’ four points, Northeastern found the back of the net eight times in two games against two of the best goalies in the country. Boyle and BC’s Thatcher Demko are both up for the Mike Richter award for best goalie in Hockey East; they both finished in the top five for save percentage nationally, and they both fell to Northeastern this weekend.
NU’s first line of Zach Aston-Reese and John and Nolan Stevens combined for 10 points at TD Garden, the most of any line that played in the tournament. Aston-Reese netted NU’s first goal on Friday and the last goal in the third period on Saturday that would end up being the clincher.
Much like most of his teammates, freshman forward Adam Gaudette got off to a slow start this season. After posting only five points in his first 17 games with the red and black, the highly touted rookie took off and showed the nation why the Vancouver Canucks selected him in the fifth round of the 2015 NHL entry draft. Since Dec. 19, Gaudette has put up 25 points (nine goals, 16 assists) in 23 games and has asserted himself as a daunting offensive, physical presence on the ice. His two goals and one assist last weekend earned him Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week from Hockey East.
Sophomore Dylan Sikura and senior Mike McMurtry play with Gaudette on the “7, 8, 9” line. The chemistry between those three players was on full display during two goals last weekend. In the final five seconds of the first period against BC, Sikura picked off a breakout pass from the Eagles and fed McMurtry in the slot. McMurtry sent a quick one-touch pass to the back door, where Gaudette wasted no time in burying the shot with .9 seconds left in the frame, giving Northeastern a 2-1 lead at intermission. In the opening two minutes on Saturday, Sikura snuck a pass to McMurtry in the middle, who once again sliced a pass through a defender to Gaudette for a tap-in goal. The trio combined for two goals and seven assists over the weekend en route to winning the conference.
Now 20-1-2 in their last 23 games, the Huskies enter the NCAA tournament as the hottest team in the country. The Huskies have won 13 consecutive games, the longest active streak of any team in the NCAA. They’ve scored at least three goals in their last 13 games and have not lost since the first round of the Beanpot to Boston University on Feb. 1. Heading into the tourney, Northeastern owns the No. 9 ranking in the country.
All Hail Northeastern.

With eight goals scored last weekend, the Huskies provided some great candidates for the goal of the week. There was Lincoln Griffin’s game-winning goal against BC, both of the Sikura-to-McMurtry-to-Gaudette tic-tac-toe goals, and of course, the absolute clap-bomb by Eric Williams against BC.
One goal stood above the rest last weekend, the goal that got the Huskies started for the weekend scoring parade. Aston-Reese’s goal in the first period against BC was one of the best goals by a Husky in a long time. After Nolan Stevens scooped up the puck in the defensive zone, the Huskies looked to break out with speed. Stevens cut through the neutral zone before hitting Aston-Reese with a pass at the BC blueline. Aston-Reese caught the pass in stride, and moved in one-on-one with BC defender Ian McCoshen. Using his speed, Aston-Reese pulled the puck quickly from forehand to backhand, leaving McCoshen in the dust. All alone in front of the net, Aston-Reese slipped the puck between Demko’s legs to level the score at 1-1. After seeing the puck go in, he skated into the corner and celebrated on one knee with a huge fist pump before being mobbed by his elated teammates.
