TAMPA - They don’t list heart and skill on a roster. If they did no one would ever refer to 5-foot-8-inch, (ahem) 150-pound Boston College freshman forward Johnny Gaudreau as small.
The pint-sized puckster, who looks like your paper boy, helped deliver Boston College its 19th straight win and a national championship Saturday night in the Frozen Four final at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Gaudreau’s highlight-reel goal with 3:02 left propelled BC to a hard-fought 4-1 victory over Ferris State and its third national title since 2008, No. 4 under coach Jerry York.
