TJ Hartnett: Ahhhh, hockey season is back on The Heights, but is the hype? The #13 ranked Eagles come in facing arguably the hardest schedule in the country. Granted, 50% of HE teams are ranked already, but out of conference is no joke. Starting off against the #14 ranked Bobcats, the team that bounced you from the Frozen Four 2 years prior should provide some extra incentive to get this team in the W column first night out. Conte will be rocking, Eagles will score early, and Woll will show up for 3 periods. BC 2, QU 1

Quinn Kelly: For the 6th time in the Jerry York Era, the Eagles will open up with a true home game. In the previous 5 games, they hold a 5-0-0 record. York knows how to get his team up for an opening night showdown in front of a friendly Conte Forum crowd. With a Friday night game against a budding rival in Quinnipiac, a young Eagles squad should have plenty to get hyped for. Though there are only a few players left from the 2015-2016 team that was eliminated by the Bobcats in the Frozen Four semis, they will lead the team to finally seek some measure of vengeance, after failing last year in the 2nd ever meeting between the two programs. BC comes in at #13 with a slate of 7 straight top-14 opponents to start the season, so it is imperative they get off on the right foot against the, by the rankings, weakest team they’ll face til November. Eags will ride the hot crowd, but have a few hiccups with some young guys getting first-game jitters. BC 3, QU 2

Steve McAlee: Joe Woll really starts to cement himself as one of college hockey’s best goalies in game 1 of the 2016-2017 season. BC 3 – Quinnipiac 1

Landon Komishane: In a rematch of the 2016 Frozen Four semifinal, BC starts off strong behind a solid performance from Joe Woll. BC 2, Quinnipiac 1

Kyle Maslan: We will see what the new look BC offense looks like after losing a lot of scoring the past two seasons. BC will rely on a defense lead by Casey Fitzgerald and Michael Kim. Although the linchpin of the season will be Joe Woll. Look for him to come out and stand on his head from game 1. 2-1 Boston College

Ben Neuwirth: BC Hockey is back and last year’s young team has gotten a little older and a little wiser. We all know the talent is there but it’ll be up to legend Jerry York and the rest of the BC coaching staff to ship them into shape. I think we see the Eagles come out strong game 1. 4-1 BC

Al Preziosi: This should be a competitive, low-scoring game. Expect Joe Woll to put on a show. BC 1 – QU 0

Sam Parsons: The #13 Eagles open the hockey season at home against a rock-solid #14 Quinnipiac squad at Conte. It’s a great game you don’t want to miss. I expect the Eagles’ offense to be fired up. BC 3, QU 2

Matt Sottile: The young Eagles have another year of experience and chemistry under their belt, and a shiny new locker room heading into this season. Coming off a year in which they just missed out on the NCAA tournament, they will turn to their sophomore goalie Joe Woll to become one of the top netminders in the country, and #13 BC gets their season off to a good start against a ranked team. BC 3, QU 1
