After watching Dan Brady don the symbolic Scarlet sports jacket at the 1992 induction ceremonies, Tim Regan, the remaining half of Boston University's 1968-72 Hall of Fame goaltending tandem similarly took his rightful place among the all-time great Terrier athletic heroes the following year.
In three years of varsity play, the Regan-Brady duo compiled an overall mark of 91-13-2, captured a pair of NCAA titles, a single ECAC crown, and a string of three consecutive Beanpot banners. For his part between the pipes, Regan turned aside 1165 shots, while allowing but 108 goals in 54 games, for a stellar .915 save percentage, and an equally impressive 2.18 goals again average.
As a senior in December of 1971, Regan added a shade of blue to his familiar Scarlet and White uniform and joined the US Olympic Hockey contingent for the upcoming Winter Games in Sapporo, Japan. However, he returned to Boston University in March, and immediately found himself on the Boston Garden ice for the 1972 NCAA Championships. After keeping the Badgers at bay in the 4-1 semifinal round triumph over, Regan turned aside 39 shots en route to blanking Cornell, 4-0 and earning the Tournament MVP Award. The win provided the Terriers with a 26-4-1 mark and back-to-back national titles.
Although freshman were prohibited from playing varsity sport
prior to 1973, Boston University previewed the future when
Regan compiled an 8-0 mark, allowed but nine goals, and posted
a 1.12 goals against average, while helping the freshman squad
to a perfect 17-0 record.
The following year, he was one of nine sophomores who joined the varsity for what was expected to be a rebuilding year. Behind the steady play of Regan, who made 550 saves and registered a 2.82 goals against average - - second in the East, the club posted a 20-7 slate, captured the Beanpot, and finished third in the ECAC Championship.
Having proven itself the year before, the 1970-71 team took
the ice with great expectations, and, in what soon became
a tale of two tenders, the Regan-Brady rotation led the squad
to a 28-2-1 mark, its first ever NCAA championship, the ECAC
crown, and the Beanpot title. Brady, who played in 14 games,
allowed but 23 goals and posted a 1.77 goals against average.
