Beanpot Official Logo.png

The Beanpot is an ice hockey tournament among the four major college hockey schools of the Boston, Massachusetts area, held annually since the 1952–53 season.[1] The tournament gives the winner bragging rights over its cross-town rivals, and the quest for this highly sought-after trophy is contested in front of frantic crowds from all four schools in annual sellouts.

Format[edit]

The competitors are:

The tournament lasts two rounds, with first-round opponents being rotated from year to year. The second round features the consolation game and the championship game.

In addition to the tournament trophy, two individual awards are given out each year. The Eberly Trophy[3] goes to the goaltender with the highest save percentage who plays in both of his team's games, while the Beanpot MVP[4] is awarded to tournament's most valuable player.

History[edit]

The first Beanpot was contested at Boston Arena in December 1952. No tournament was played during the 1953 calendar year. The next two tournaments were held in January (1954 and 1955). All subsequent Beanpot games have been played in February (except 1978; see below).

The second through 43rd Beanpots (1954 through 1995) were held at the old Boston Garden. Since 1996, the Beanpot has been held at the Garden's replacement, currently called the TD Garden. The competition generally takes place on the first and second Mondays in February.

The 1978 Beanpot has taken a mythic place in Boston sports lore, as several hundred fans were stuck in the Garden for several days after the Blizzard of 1978 dumped more than two feet of snow during the night of the first round games. The championship and consolation games were moved to Wednesday, March 1.

Every championship game to date has featured either Boston College or Boston University, or both—Harvard and Northeastern have never met in the Beanpot final. (By contrast, Harvard and Northeastern have historically dominated the Women's Beanpot.)

Boston College controlled the early years of the Beanpot, winning eight titles in the first thirteen tournaments, with Harvard taking four and BU just one. Between 1966 and 2009, however, the Boston University Terriers historically dominated the Beanpot, winning 28 out of 43 titles and earning the right[according to whom?] to nickname the contest the "BU Invitational". However, in recent years, the balance of power has again come under the Eagles of Boston College, who hold an active streak of five consecutive titles and eight in the last thirteen years. BC will look to tie BU's record for most consecutive titles won (6) next year.

The beginning of BU's Beanpot dominance was also the first year on the ice for Jack Parker. Parker won titles in each of the three years he played for the Terriers, and since taking over as head coach in 1973–74 Parker has won 21 more championships.

Wayne Turner with 1980 Beanpot

Northeastern, the only Beanpot team that has never won an NCAA hockey title, failed to win a Beanpot until 1980, when an overtime goal by Wayne Turner against Boston College gave the Huskies a win. Turner's wrist shot has often been called the most important goal in Northeastern history, and is generally considered the marquee sporting moment for the university. It is also known as the "Shot Heard Round the Beanpot".[5] Currently, Turner is Director of Operations of the Human Resources Department at MIT.[6]

Northeastern won three more titles in the 1980s, but has failed to capture the Beanpot since 1988. The Huskies came close to winning their fifth title in 2005 when they rallied from a 2–0 goal deficit to tie BU, but fell in overtime when Chris Bourque—son of former Boston Bruin Ray Bourque—scored the winning goal. They have made it to championship game three times in the past four years (2011, 2013, 2014) but fell to Boston College each time.

Recent Tournaments[edit]

2007[edit]

The 2007 Beanpot took place February 5 and February 12. On February 5, Boston University beat Northeastern 4–0 while Boston College beat Harvard 3–1. On February 12, Northeastern defeated Harvard 3–1 in the Consolation Game and Boston University defeated Boston College 2–1 in OT of the Championship Game. This win gave BU its 28th Beanpot title, more than the other three schools combined.

2008[edit]

The 2008 tournament took place February 4 and February 11. On February 4, Harvard beat Northeastern 3–1 and Boston College beat Boston University 4–3 in overtime. On February 11, Boston College beat Harvard in overtime, 6–5 to earn the school's 14th championship.

2009[edit]

The opening round of the 2009 tournament took place February 2. BU beat Harvard 4–3 after Harvard went up 2–0. Harvard scored what would have been the game-tying goal after regulation had expired, resulting in a BU victory. In the second game, Northeastern crushed BC 6–1. BU and Northeastern entered the Beanpot Championship on February 9 as the #1 and #2 ranked teams in the country in the USA Today Men's Hockey Poll, making the 2009 Championship arguably one of the most anticipated Beanpot games ever played. BU won the game 5–2 thanks to three shorthanded goals.

2010[edit]

In the opening round of the 2010 tournament that took place February 1. BC beat Harvard 6–0. In the second game, BU beat Northeastern 2–1. BC and BU faced off on February 8 in the Championship game. BC beat BU 4–3 with a highlight goal scored by Chris Kreider earning the 15th Beanpot title for Boston College. John Muse earned both the Eberly Trophy and Beanpot MVP honors, stopping 64-of-67 shots (.955) in the two-game tournament to become the first BC goalie since Greg Taylor in 1994 to capture both honors.

2011[edit]

In the opening round of the 2011 tournament that took place February 7. Northeastern beat Harvard 4–0. In the second game, BC beat BU in overtime 3–2. BC and Northeastern faced off on February 14 in the championship game. BC won 7–6 in overtime with junior forward Jimmy Hayes netting the game-winner and sophomore Chris Kreider winning the tournament MVP earning the 16th Beanpot title for Boston College. This was the first time the Eagles won consecutive Beanpot crowns since winning three straight from 1963–65.

2012[edit]

In the opening round of the 2012 tournament that took place February 6. Boston University beat Harvard 3–1. In the second game, BC crushed Northeastern 7–1. BC and BU faced off on February 13 in the championship game. BC won 3–2 in overtime with sophomore forward Bill Arnold netting the game-winner with 6.4 seconds left and freshman forward Johnny Gaudreau winning the tournament MVP earning the 17th Beanpot title for Boston College. This was the first time the Eagles won three consecutive Beanpot crowns since winning three straight from 1963–65.

2013[edit]

In the opening round of the 2013 tournament that took place February 4. Northeastern beat Boston University 3–2. In the second game, BC beat Harvard 4–1. BC and Northeastern faced off on February 11 in the championship game. BC won 6–3 earning the 18th Beanpot title for Boston College. Northeastern's Kevin Roy being named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament and is the first person to be named MVP who did not play for the championship team since BU's Sean Fields in 2004. Parker Milner won the Eberly Award for having the best save percentage in the tournament. BC's senior class became the first class to go 8–0 and win four consecutive Beanpot titles. Similarly it was the first time in the history of the tournament that a BU graduating class (Class of 2013) graduated without at least one beapot win.

2014[edit]

The 2014 Beanpot took place on February 3 and 10. In the first round of the tournament, Northeastern defeated Harvard in a 6–0 rout and BC defeated BU 3–1. Harvard would defeat BU in the consolation round 6–2, marking the first time in tournament history that BU finished last in consecutive tournaments. In a rematch of the previous season's championship, BC defeated Northeastern by a score of 4–1. It was a tight 1–1 contest through two and three-quarter periods, but the Eagles pulled away with a deflection goal by senior captain Patrick Brown, who managed to redirect the puck while lying on his back. Kevin Hayes was named MVP and freshman Thatcher Demko was awarded the Eberly with the third highest save percentage (.966) in tournament history. BC earned its 5th consecutive championship and 19th in program history. BC's senior class became the second in school history to go 8–0 and perfect in the tournament, the first class being the previous year's senior class.

Other Beanpots[edit]

The success of the men's ice hockey tournament has spawned "Beanpot" tournaments in other sports, including women's ice hockey, baseball (with the University of Massachusetts Amherst replacing Boston University, which does not offer varsity baseball), softball, men's and women's soccer, women's rowing (which also features MIT) and cycling.

The Women's Ice Hockey Beanpot takes place each year on the first two Tuesdays in February, one day after their male counterparts. Northeastern and Harvard have historically dominated the tournament, with 14 and 11 titles respectively, but Boston College has won the title two years in a row. Notably, they advanced to the 2007 final with a 4–3, triple overtime victory over nationally ranked Harvard, in a game that drew national attention. BC's freshman goalie Molly Schaus set an NCAA record with 73 saves in the contest. In recent years, an informal "Pep Band" beanpot has been held between the two games of the first round of the women's beanpot, with the bands from each school performing a unique piece.

The final round of the baseball Beanpot is played at Fenway Park.

A Beanpot for women's rowing was established in 2007, with the crews from Boston College, Boston University, Harvard University (Radcliffe), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Northeastern University competing.

The first Men's Lacrosse Beanpot was held October 19, 2008 at Harvard University. Harvard's Men's Club Team hosted Boston University, Boston College and Northeastern University.

There are also many non-athletic events attached to the Beanpot. These typically occur the same time of year as the hockey beanpot. There is a Concert Band Beanpot, Beanpot of Comedy, and a Rice and Beanpot burrito-eating contest, sponsored by Qdoba. The Concert Band Beanpot and Beanpot of Comedy are non-competitive events.

Also, there is the B-School Beanpot Competition, an annual case analysis competition held at Boston University's School of Management since 1996. Undergraduate business schools from the Greater Boston area participate for cash prizes.

The Concert Band Beanpot and Rice and Beanpot participants are the same schools as the men's hockey tournament. The Beanpot of Comedy, hosted by NU & Improv'd of Northeastern University, features sketch and improvisational comedy groups from different schools each year. Past participants have included Boston College, Boston University, Salem State College, Suffolk University, Clark University, and Tufts University. The Business Beanpot participants are Babson College, Boston University, Bentley College, Northeastern University, and Suffolk University. Northeastern University has won ten of the twelve Business Beanpots since 1996, and has taken the top two spots four times. The most recent 1–2 sweep for Northeastern was in 2008.

The Boston College Office of Undergraduate Admission and the Boston University Office of Undergraduate Admission also play in the annual Beancan softball tournament, usually held in July.

On September 26, 2014, the BBC reported that Boston mayor Marty Walsh announced publicly during an official visit to Belfast (Boston's sister city since 2014) that he was supporting a bid to hold a future Beanpot tournament at Odyssey Area in Belfast and that Walsh reportedly will be hosting a delegation from Belfast alongside representatives from the NCAA and the four beanpot schools in October 2014 to further discuss the possibility.[7] However, after a large negative outcry from the Boston media, Walsh later stated that the idea of moving the tournament to a non-Boston venue was taken out of context, and that he only supported "the hosting of a "Beanpot-like" tournament in Belfast that would feature Massachusetts colleges." [8]

Individual awards[edit]

Two awards are presented annually: the Most Valuable Player award and the Eberly Award. The Eberly Award, first presented in 1974, is given annually to the goalie with the best save percentage. The winning goalie must participate in two games to qualify. The award is named after Glen and Dan Eberly, former Beanpot goaltenders at Boston University and Northeastern University, respectively.
