Yesterday Boston College goaltender and Montreal Canadiens prospect Jacob Fowler broke an impressive record that sets him among the best of all time in college hockey.

This season Boston College goaltender Jacob Fowler has been on an absolute tear backstopping the Eagles with some of the best numbers in all of college hockey. As the 2023 3rd round pick of the Montreal Canadiens, Jacob Fowler has been nearly unbeatable with BC.

Last night he posted a solid performance which resulted in the Eagles defeating the Quinnipiac Bobcats 5-4 and granting BC an entry to the 2024 Frozen Four.

With that win, Fowler now officially has the most wins all-time by an NCAA freshman goaltender in a single season with 31.



Writing his page in the NCAA record books ✍️

Jacob Fowler earns his 31st win and sets the NCAA single-season record for most wins by a freshman goalie! 👏

Fowler now has a record of 31-5-1, a .924 sv%, and a 2.20 GAA. Mind-boggling numbers for a freshman goalie.

Fowler is also now tied for fourth all-time for most wins in a single season for an NCAA goaltender tying with NHL legend Ryan Miller.


After winning his 31st game today, Jacob Fowler is now tied with Ryan Miller (Michigan State 2000-2001) for 4th most wins in one season in NCAA history.

With two more games for BC to play, Fowler could potentially move into third place for all-time single-season wins behind only Dryden McKay and Yaniv Perets, both of whom play in the ECHL right now.
