He led Boston College in goals (20), assists (24) and points (44) and earned All-HOCKEY EAST honors in 1996-97.

Reasoner played in 35 of the Eagles' 38 contests in 1996-97. He missed three games to captain Team USA to a silver medal at the World Junior Championships in Switzerland. Reasoner leads all returning Boston College players in career scoring with 89 points on 39 goals and 50 assists.
O'Leary played in 37 games this season, tallying 31 points on 15 goals and 16 assists. He was fourth on the team in goals and second in power-play goals with seven.
O'Leary has collected 77 points on 26 goals and 51 assists in his three years at the Heights.
Buckley, who will be a junior next season, was one of only seven Eagles to play in all 38 of Boston College's games in 1996-97. He registered eight points on two goals and six assists. Buckley has never missed a game in his collegiate career, as he has competed in 74 consecutive contests in Maroon and Gold.
