Boston U. alum Charlie McAvoy sports Boston College hat, but gets last laugh as BU wins in Beanpot semis


When Boston University defeated rival Boston College 4-3 Monday night to advance to the Beanpot final, Charlie McAvoy got the last laugh.
The Boston Bruins defenseman appeared in front of media after Monday’s practice sporting a Boston College beanie — an unusual look for the former BU Terrier.
McAvoy lost a bet with Bruins assistant coach and former BC Eagle John McLean and was forced to wear the beanie after BC swept BU in last weekend’s home-and-home, claiming the No. 1 spot in the country from the Terriers.
“It feels terrible,” McAvoy told reporters. “This one hurts a little bit.”

Top 2024 NHL Draft prospect Macklin Celebrini scored two goals to help BU to their 4-3 semifinal win on Monday.
Just as the Terriers got their revenge, it remains to be seen how McAvoy will get his revenge on McLean.
McAvoy won the Beanpot with the Terriers in 2015 when current Bruins teammate Matt Grzelcyk scored in overtime to defeat the Eagles 4-3.
The Terriers have won 31 Beanpot championships, the most of any school, and are now 30-17 against BC in the tournament, held annually between the four Boston hockey schools — BU, BC, Northeastern and Harvard — since 1952.
Defending champion Northeastern defeated Harvard 3-2 in overtime to advance to the final. BU will play Northeastern University for the 71st Beanpot title on Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
