Six members of the Boston University Terriers were in action between USA and Canada on New Year’s Eve afternoon, and while nearly all of them shone, it was Jordan Greenway who erupted in USA’s 3-1 win.
Greenway assisted on the first goal of the game, a tally from Colin White of Boston College, before scoring the second goal in tight at the Canadian net.
The Terriers’ sophomore forward also assisted on the third goal, coming from Jeremy Bracco, the former BC forward now with the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL.

While Greenway had the huge day, he wasn’t the only Terrier to contribute. Freshman forward and seventh overall NHL draft pick Clayton Keller had two assists, including one on Greenway’s goal, while Charlie McAvoy also added an assist. Keller’s seven points leads the American team.
Midway through the third period, BU freshman forward Patrick Harper drew a power play when he was prevented from a breakaway chance. Canada goalie Connor Ingram closed the pads to stop a sliding puck and keep Harper off the scoresheet.
Dante Fabbro, the Terriers’ freshman defender on Canada, was held without a point and finished the game with an even rating.
With the victory, USA takes Group B and will advance to the Quarterfinal Round on Monday. They will play either Switzerland, Finland, or the Czech Republic.
