More than BU fans rooting for a Terrier

As a junior defenseman for Boston University, David Warsofsky has played on the ice at TD Garden before.

As a junior defenseman for Boston University, David Warsofsky has played on the ice at TD Garden before.

But when he faces off against Boston College in the opening round of the 59th Beanpot next Monday, the pro-level setting will take on a whole new significance.

In between Beanpots, Warsofsky became property of the Bruins, his rights acquired during last June’s draft in a trade with St. Louis for forward Vladimir Sobotka.

Though Warsofsky still has another year of college eligibility under his belt and plans to finish his degree in history, more than just the Terrier fan base will be tracking his every move during the four-team tournament.

“You grow up in the Boston area and dream about playing for the Bruins and hopefully, one day, I have the opportunity to do that,” Warsofsky told the Bruins’ website earlier this month. “Hopefully the Boston Bruins will always be there for me.”

In the meantime, he’s starring at BU. Warsofsky has 19 points (seven goals, 12 assists) through 25 games this season. That’s just four points shy of matching his career-high total.

The rest of the field ...

Northeastern
Record: 8-10-6
Outlook: Without a Beanpot to call their own since 1988, the Huskies are 3-0-2 in their past five games — including a 3-0 victory over Harvard. Senior forward Wade MacLeod leads with 13 goals and 25 points.

Boston College
Record: 18-6-0
Outlook: The second-ranked defending national champions are 3-0 against first-round opponent BU this season. Junior forward Cam Atkinson is tops on the Eagles with 19 goals and 32 points. Brian Gibbons has 20 assists on the year.

Harvard
Record: 4-16-0
Outlook: The Crimson are struggling mightily this season with a 4-16 record, though they managed to snap an ugly seven-game losing streak Saturday. Sophomore forward Alex Killorn leads with seven goals.
