Coyotes prospect Clayton Keller set up Boston University's game-winning goal in double overtime on Friday, and the Terriers advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament.

Keller, whom the Coyotes selected with the seventh overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, slid a nifty pass through the slot to teammate Charlie McAvoy, who scored at 11:48 of the second OT. Keller also assisted on Boston University's second goal at 0:28 of the third period.

Keller entered the tournament as Boston University's top goal scorer (20) and point producer (42). His first assist in Friday's game extended his point streak to nine games.

Next up for Boston University is a quarterfinal game vs. Minnesota Duluth on Saturday at 3 p.m. Arizona time. That game can be seen on ESPNU.
