Before the season, Boston University sophomore left wing Matthew Quercia probably wasn’t on too many people’s radar when it came to producing offensively.
The Andover, Mass., native had just one goal and one assist during his freshman season. However, Quercia went to work over the summer to improve his game and earn more minutes.
“Matt is being rewarded for hard work,” said BU head coach Albie O’Connell. “He had a good summer. He’s in good shape. He’s a big, strong guy. He’s playing higher in the lineup this year and getting more ice time.”
Quercia, who measures in at 6-foot-3 and 202 pounds, didn’t necessarily need to work on his strength like some players do over the offseason. Instead, he went to work to improve his skill.
