More from Hockey

The Eagles begin their season with an exhibition tomorrow, and when the regular season rolls around, it is these young men that the rest will look up to for leadership (even though the captain is a junior).

These guys were all part of Boston College’s last championship team, and hope to instruct the new players in the ways of winning.

2014-15 Boston College Hockey Seniors:
Destry Straight

Forward | West Vancouver, BC

Straight came to Boston College from another BC, where he played junior hockey in his home province. In 2010-11 for the Coquitlam Express, he posted a 67-point season in 49 games.

In his three years on the Heights, he has played in a total of 101 games, including 25 last season. Against Penn State, Straight notched his first-career hat trick.

2014-15 Boston College Hockey Seniors:
Cam Spiro

Forward | Hingham, MA

Spiro came to Boston College from Tabor Academy in Marion, where he was an All-New England player as a senior. Since his arrival, Spiro has played in 25 total games, with 23 coming during his sophomore season.

He had his best Boston College game to date against Alabama-Huntsville, a contest notable for delivering Jerry York his record-breaking victory.

2014-15 Boston College Hockey Seniors:
Michael Sit

Forward | Edina, MN

Sit has appeared in 116 games so far for the Eagles, posting his first-career goal against then #2 Wisconsin early last season, and adding four more after that.

The Minnesota native’s offensive game became a little more pronounced as a junior, and with plenty of room to move up on the line chart, he will get the chance to show what he can do.

2014-15 Boston College Hockey Seniors:
Danny Linell

Forward | Great Neck, NY

Linell is a Choate Rosemary Hall product who was his team’s MVP as a senior. Since he made it to Boston College, Linell has appeared in 112 games.

In the past two seasons, he has had consistent levels of production with 12 points as a sophomore and 13 points as a junior. His lone goal last season came on the power play.

2014-15 Boston College Hockey Seniors:
Quinn Smith

Forward | Fairfield, CT

Smith started his journey to Boston College having played junior hockey in the USHL like so many of his teammates. His team was Youngstown, where in the 2010-11 season he had 17 points. Prior to that, he was the star and team MVP at Avon Old Farms in Connecticut.

Quinn Smith has played in 110 games as an Eagle, and last season had 11 points. Along with Michael Sit, he will wear an “A” for Boston College in the 2014-15 season.

2014-15 Boston College Hockey Seniors:
Brad Barone

Goaltender | Medfield, MA

Barone is a local product through and through, playing his high school hockey at Roxbury Latin and then moving on to junior hockey with Foxboro’s South Shore Kings of the EJHL.

He has been a third-string goalie for most of his time on the Heights, making it into four games last season as a backup. The biggest stretch of his career came in the Army game, where he played almost a full period of shutout hockey.

2014-15 Boston College Hockey Seniors:
Brian Billett

Goaltender | Brunswick, ME

Billett has been both a backup and a starter for Boston College, starting eight games before ultimately watching Parker Milner lead the Eagles to a national championship. Last season, he flirted with the full-time starter’s role again, but Thatcher Demko would go on to take the job.

He has played in a total of 27 games so far as an Eagle; as a starter in the 2013-14 season, he was 12-3-1 as a starter with a 2.42 GAA.
