Brian Leetch, Mike Mottau Headline Top Five Defensemen in Hockey East History

Brian Leetch enjoyed a very successful NHL career. But before he was manning the Rangers' blue line, he was tearing it up for Boston College.

NESN's Josh Ciocco shared his list of the top five defensemen in Hockey East history prior to Saturday's UMass-Lowell-BU showdown, and Leetch's name was penciled in. He didn't earn the top spot, though, which may come as a bit of surprise to some.

To see who earned No. 1 honors and who else made Ciocco's top five, check out the video above.
