BOSTON, Mass. - Playing in its second and final exhibition contest of the season, the No. 6 Boston University men's ice hockey team dropped a 7-4 contest to the U.S. National Under-18 Team on Friday evening at Agganis Arena. The Terriers will take on Wisconsin in their home opener on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Senior Ahti Oksanen scored twice while classmate Danny O'Regan recorded a goal and two assists. Their linemate, freshman Jordan Greenway, chipped in with two assists. Senior Matt Lane also found the back of the net for BU, which held a commanding 45-22 shot advantage.

The U18 squad was paced by three-point nights from Kiefer Bellows (2g, 1a) and Clayton Keller (3a). Trent Frederic scored their first and seventh goals while Griffin Luce, Casey Mittelstadt and Will Lookwood each potted a goal.

The Terriers never held a lead, drawing even at 1-1 and 2-2 before the visitors scored breakaway goals 28 seconds apart late in the second to take the lead for good.

Lane's goal made it a 4-3 Team USA lead with 13:31 remaining in regulation, but the cushion was stretched to 7-3 after a trio of goals ended any chance of a Terrier comeback.

Jake Oettinger made 41 saves for the U18s while sophomore Connor LaCouvee (5) and senior Sean Maguire (10) combined for 15 saves for BU. Each team went 1-for-4 on the power play.
