Montreal Canadiens’ spectacular youngster Lane Hutson wrote his name in the Boston University Terriers legend on Saturday by playing the Heroes in overtime in the Hockey East Conference Finals.

The second-round pick in the final draft allowed his team to be crowned by threading the pin in overtime with a disguised wrist shot.
The Terriers defeated the Merrimack Warriors 3-2. And guess who scored the other goals for the Boston team? Devin Kaplan and none other than Lane Hutson.
With that, the small and skilful defender was named Player of the Tournament, another accolade since the start of the season. He also matched Brian Leetch’s record for most points in a season by an under-19 full-back with 47.
The terriers will thus compete in the Frozen Four, which brings together the best collegiate teams in the country.
See his winning goal in the video above and his first goal in the video below.
We rarely hear from Rhett Pitlick, Rem’s younger brother. The 2019 fifth-round pick hasn’t hit an all-time high this season but he caused quite a stir with a stunning goal on Saturday.
The University of Minnesota Golden Gophers forward was one of three scorers in a 4-3 loss to the University of Michigan Wolverines in the Big Ten Conference Finals.
Pitlick knocked down defenseman Steven Holtz with a series of spectacular forgers. The latter found himself airborne with all four irons, while the Habs’ hope found the back of the net thanks to a quick wrist shot.
Furthermore, just like Pitlick, Sean Farrell and his team suffered a defeat in the finals. Colgate University became ECAC Conference Champions by beating Harvard University 3-2.
Joshua Roy again
Closer to home, Quebec’s Joshua Roy showed no mercy for the Val-d’Or Foreurs in front of their fans.
The Canadian gem had a natural hat-trick in the first half and racked up two more assists in the 9-1 win over Sherbrooke Phoenix.
His teammates Justin Gill (four assists) and Ethan Gauthier (two goals, one assist) also had their fun at the expense of the Abitibi team.
This season, Roy has 41 goals and 90 points in 52 games.
