As Boston College pointed out yesterday, no college hockey program has put more players into the NHL this season than Boston College. 26 Eagles put skate to ice this season on hockey’s biggest stage, and enough of them will get to play in the 2014 NHL Playoffs. That number jumped to 26 when Bill Arnold and Johnny Gaudreau shipped off to Calgary to play in their season finale.
In total, 13 Boston College Eagles have made the cut. Who will be in those 2014 NHL Playoffs, you ask, and for whom?
Please note that Boston College’s graphic does not count Ben Lovejoy of the Anaheim Ducks, a one-year Eagle who transferred to Dartmouth.
