For the fourth year in a row, the Boston College Eagles are Beanpot champions.

Sophomore Johnny Gaudreau scored twice and senior Parker Milner stopped 20 shots leading Boston College to their 6-3 win over Northeastern tonight.

“It’s been a great winter for Boston College hockey,” BC head coach Jerry York told WEBN. “There is a big emphasis at our school on winning Beanpots. We had a tough stretch there for a while in the 70s, 80s, and 90s but we turned this thing around.”

This year’s seniors are the first in the school’s history to win the annual tournament all four years and they continue to have college hockey bragging rights in Boston.

BC is already the defending national champions having won won three of the last five NCAA titles.

Northeastern freshman Kevin Roy was named Beanpot MVP. He had a pair of goals for the Huskies and a hat trick in the team’s first-round victory over Boston University.

Earlier in the day, Harvard beat Boston University 7-4 in the consolation game.

“All four of these teams, we love playing each other every time we get the chance to,” said Milner.
