Already, this is shaping up as a special season for Mike Driscoll and his teammates on the men’s hockey team at Babson College. The Beavers (19-3-1, 13-2-1 ECAC East), ranked fourth in Division 3, are unbeaten (8-0-1) in their last nine games.
Driscoll, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound forward from Milton via BC High, leads the Beavers in scoring (23 points), and his 11 goals tie him for fifth place in the ECAC East. He has two game-winning tallies and three power play goals.
Last month, skating in the Frozen Fenway, Babson dropped a 1-0 decision to Norwich.
Driscoll and his teammates wil get another shot at Norwich (15-5-3, 11-3-2) Friday night in Northfield, Vt., in a matchup that will decide the regular season ECAC East title. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
