ast season, Boston College women’s hockey fell in the NCAA Quarterfinals, while men’s hockey unceremoniously bowed out in the Hockey East semifinals. This year, men’s hockey returns 105 of the 108 goals it scored last year and welcomes one of the best recruiting classes in the country. At the same time, women’s hockey boasts the reigning Patty Kazmaier Award winner in Daryl Watts and a trio of Olympic gold medalists, who are (re)joining the team after the 2018 Pyeongchang Games. As a result, both teams face increased expectations, but undoubtedly have the talent to reach them.
