The Boston University men's hockey team traveled to Vermont Friday for their first game since the school's president announced the school would form a task force to investigate the culture of the team.

The announcement follows allegations of sexual assault against two hockey players on the team.

On Sunday, junior Max Nicastro was arrested on sexual assault charges. Nicastro’s arrest came a little more than two months after his teammate, Corey Trivino, was arrested on similar charges.

We look at whether BU hockey is indicative of a culture of sexual violence in college athletics.

  • Arielle Aronson, Boston University student and hockey reporter for the Daily Free Press, BU's independent student newspaper
  • Jarrod Chin, director of violence prevention and diversity at the Northeastern University Center for Sport in Society
