MacLeod brothers hit the ice

Former Nelson Junior Leafs defenceman Isaac MacLeod and the Boston College Eagles have started the 2011-12 season as the No. 1 ranked team in the United States.

Entering his second season of NCAA hockey, the Nelson Minor Hockey grad patrolled the blueline in a pair of weekend games that saw the Eagles split two big contests.

On Friday night at their home arena before 7,884 fans, the Eagles dropped a 4-2 decision to No. 3 ranked Denver. On Saturday night the Eagles hit the road and improved their season record to 3-1-0 with a 5-1 win against New Hampshire.

In Houghton, Michigan MacLeod’s older brother Alex was helping the Michigan Tech Huskies with two huge overtime victories over the University of Wisconsin. The Huskies are now 4-0. Alex MacLeod is in his final season of NCAA hockey.
