BU (0-1) began its first-ever season with a 17-6 loss at Mercer this past Saturday. It was a game of many milestones, including the program's first goal, scored by freshman Pat Myers. He added a second and also collected an assist while freshmen James Clarke, Cal Dearth, Clay Phillips and Adam Schaal also scored. The Terriers are also the only Patriot League squad with a perfect man-up percentage, as well as one of two conference teams to have scored a man-down goal.
Another positive from the Mercer game came at the faceoff X. Freshman Sam Talkow won his first eight draws and finished the game 15-of-21 on faceoffs. He also collected a game-high 12 ground balls, which ranks second among Patriot League players and first among those who have only played once this season.
Canisius will be making its 2014 debut after finishing 2013 with a 3-10 record. The Golden Griffins return their top offensive player from last season, Tim Edwards. He led Canisius in goals (20), assists (19) and points (39). Goalkeeper Alex Govenettio will be back between the pipes after he posted a 12.16 goals-against average and a .428 save percentage in 11 starts as a sophomore.
Following Saturday's home opener, BU will begin Patriot League play when the Terriers welcome Lehigh to Nickerson Field on Feb. 22. Game time is set for 1 p.m.
