LaCouture Leaves Boston University

WABU-TV68 reported during its broadcast of Tuesday’s Harvard at Boston University game that Terrier rookie forward Dan LaCouture has left school due to “personal and family reasons.” Nothing additional is known at this time.

The BU Daily Free Press reported earlier Tuesday that LaCouture suffered an elbow injury in the Merrimack series and was “doubtful” for the BU-Harvard game. There was no mention made by the Free Press of LaCouture leaving school.

LaCouture leads all BU freshmen with six goals and seven points in 10 games and has played left wing on the top line with Shawn Bates and Matt Wright. Fellow freshman Greg Quebec took LaCouture’s place on the Bates-Wright line in the Harvard game.
