Boston University, UMass Pregame: Line Combinations

Matt Dewkett

AMHERST, MASS. -- Jack Eichel makes his regular season collegiate debut Friday night at the Mullins Center as his Boston University Terriers take on the Massachusetts Minutemen. It is the season opener for both teams in a battle of teams that finished ninth and 10th in Hockey East last season.

Matt O'Connor reportedly was dinged up in practice yesterday and will be used only in emergency. Freshman Connor LaCouvee will get his first collegiate start.

All 10 freshmen are in the lineup for the Terriers while seven rookies dot the lineup for the Minutemen, not including backup goaltender Henry Dill.
