The Boston University Terriers women's ice hockey represent Boston University. The Terriers play in the Hockey East conference.

History[edit]

Caroline Boudreau scored the first goal in BU program history. This was accomplished against Northeastern on Oct. 7, 2005.[1] In the same game, Gina Kearns scored the first shorthanded goal in Terriers history.[2]

On March 8, 2010, sophomore Tara Watchorn scored at 9:52 in overtime as the Number 3 seeded Terriers triumphed over No. 5 seed Connecticut Huskies women's ice hockey program. The game was played at Schneider Arena on the Providence College campus. The Terriers clinched their first ever Hockey East Tournament title and earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament. It was Watchorn’s second goal of the season. The 2010 Hockey East Tournament Championship game was the first ever to go into overtime in the eight-year history of the league.[3]

Early in the 2010-11 season, the Terriers made club history. On October 2, Olympic gold medallist Marie-Philip Poulin scored a goal for Boston University in her first NCAA game. The following day, BU defeated North Dakota by a 6-2 mark. It signified the first time in program history that the Terriers defeated an opponent from the WCHA.[4] With her third shorthanded goal of the season on October 15, freshman Marie-Philip Poulin tied BU’s single-season record for shorthanded tallies in just four games. She led all NCAA freshmen in goals (9) and points per game (2.00) during October 2010. In addition, she led all Hockey East freshmen in goals, assists and points, and ranked during the month. She was ranked first among all Hockey East players in shorthanded goals with three. In the first seven games of her NCAA career, she had a seven-game point-scoring streak consisting of nine goals and seven assists.[5]

In the first half of the 2010-11 season, Kerrin Sperry collected three shutouts and became the first Terrier netminder to record back-to-back shutouts.[6] She accomplished the feat after blanking Connecticut, 4-0, on Dec. 4 and the Northeastern Huskies, 3-0, on Dec. 7. On January 16, 2011, the Terriers defeated Maine and set a program record with their 11th home win of the season. The previous mark was 10 wins during the 2006-07 season.[7] On January 22, 2011, Poulin recorded a hat trick, including two power play goals as BU prevailed over Vermont in a 4-0 win. The win was the Terriers 100th win in program history. Poulin broke BU’s single-season points record with her second goal of the game and later tied the single-season goals record with her third marker.[8]

On March 18, 2011, Jillian Kirchner and junior Jenelle Kohanchuk scored in a 50-second span, as the Terriers advanced to the final of the 2011 NCAA Women's Division I Ice hockey Tournament. Kirchner's goal was the game winner as the Terriers improved to 27-6-4 and became the first Hockey East school to advance to the national title game.[9] At season's end, Catherine Ward was the first ever Terrier to be named an All-American, as she was selected for the second team.[10] In the Frozen Four championship, Marie-Philip Poulin was the only player who scored a goal as the Terriers fell by a 4-1 score to Wisconsin.[11]
