Boston University Sports Information Director Brian Kelley unveiled the school's button to support and promote Jack Eichel's bid for the 2015 Hobey Baker Award. The button that says, "I like Eich" was handed to members of the media prior to the Terriers' game against Northeastern in the 63rd annual Beanpot Tournament championship game.
Just a small piece of advice: You should probably like Eich too. #Beanpot @SBNCollegePuck pic.twitter.com/pAJgnn3Hfa— Joshua Kummins (@JoshuaKummins) February 24, 2015
Eichel, a mere lock to be the No. 2 overall selection in the 2015 NHL Draft, leads the NCAA in scoring as a freshman. The North Chelmsford, Mass. native has 16 goals and 33 assists for 49 points in 29 games played. 29 of his 49 points have come in the third period or overtime, including three overtime game-winning goals.
Boston University and Northeastern are tied, 1-1, after 20 minutes in the Beanpot championship. Mike Moran scored a breakaway goal for the Terriers 2:19 into the game. Mike Szmatula answered back for the Huskies just 28 seconds later.
