Jacob Fowler, BC Eagles Soar to Top of Hockey East

Boston College downs rival Boston University to win Hockey East title - The Rink Live | Comprehensive coverage of youth, junior, high school and college hockey

This past week, South Kent alum Jacob Fowler and the nation’s top-ranked Boston College Eagles completed an incredible showing at the Hockey East Tournament, going 3-0 and winning the Hockey East Championship. After winning a tightly contested matchup versus the Connecticut Huskies in the Quarterfinals 5-4, Fowler and the Eagles shipped up to TD Garden in Boston and dominated the Semifinals and Finals against UMass Amherst and Boston University respectively. 

While the Eagles’ offense excelled and outscored their opponents 19-7 in the three tournament games, Jacob Fowler continued to prove why he is one of the best goalies in college hockey. Fowler played in every minute of the tournament, recording 92 saves and stopping 93% of shots faced. During the semifinals and finals, the Hockey East Goaltender of the Year turned his stellar play up a notch, tallying an impressive 62 saves on 65 shots faced. As a top-10 finalist for the Richter Award, the award for the best goalkeeper in all of college hockey, Fowler has seamlessly transitioned from the junior ranks, playing well beyond his years as an Eagle. 

His resilience and maturity reigned supreme in the championship as he defeated the #2 Boston University Terriers for the third time in four meetings, bouncing back from a gut-wrenching loss in the Beanpot Tournament. Furthermore, Fowler has posted jaw dropping statlines against other national powerhouses including Michigan State, Maine, and the defending national champion Quinnipiac Bobcats, all top-10 teams. Boston College has proved to be the deepest team in college hockey throughout the 2023-24 campaign, and it would not be the case without the lionhearted performances of Fowler in his 23 games in net.

After concluding conference play with a 12-game win streak, the Eagles hold the nation’s best record at 31-5-1, earning the number 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament. Jacob Fowler will look to continue bolstering his resume as he and the Eagles will face off against midwest giant Michigan Tech in the Providence Regional Semifinal this Friday, March 29. Puck drop is at 2:00 on ESPNU, as the Eagles look to climb the mountaintop and become NCAA Tournament Champions.
