From the FreeP: Collier tallies 1st-career goal in loss

By Kevin Dillon/DFP Staff

Boston University freshman forward Brendan Collier has a big following at the men’s hockey team’s home games. The Charlestown native said he has between 10 and 30 family members and friends at Agganis Arena for any given home game.

While the Terriers fans did not have much to cheer about during Monday evening’s 3-1 loss to the University of New Hampshire, Collier’s crew got a nice moment when their guy scored his first collegiate goal in the first period.

Collier scooped up a loose puck after sophomore center Mike Moran forced it loose on the forecheck and snapped it between UNH goalie Casey DeSmith to give the Terriers the 1-0 lead in the first period. For Collier, it was the accomplishment of a dream.

“It’s a great feeling,” Collier said. “It’s a feeling you only get to experience once. I’ve been wishing for this day to come since I was a little kid so it’s nice for it to finally happen.”

  1. I hope his second goal doesn't take as long as the first one.
