MONTREAL - Jordan Harris likely dreamed about a moment like this.

The 19-year-old defenseman scored a power play goal in double overtime to lead the Northeastern University Huskies to their third consecutive Beanpot title.

The Beanpot is an annual tournament featuring the four major hockey schools in the Boston area - Northeastern, Harvard, Boston University and Boston College.

The Huskies held a 4-2 lead over Boston University after 40 minutes, but Terriers forward Trevor Zegras tied things up with 1.2 seconds remaining in regulation.

Harris actually capitalized on a Zegras penalty in the second extra frame to pot the game-winner for a memorable 5-4 triumph.

The third-round selection of the Canadiens (71st overall) in 2018 gave Northeastern their seventh Beanpot crown in school history.

In 25 games so far this season, Harris has three goals and 17 points.

His teammate and fellow Canadiens prospect Jayden Struble was unable to participate in the contest due to a lower-body injury.

Struble, 18, has three goals and 10 points in 21 games during his freshman campaign.

He was a second-round selection (46th overall) in 2019.
