BC's York Earns 1,000th Career Win
Boston College head coach Jerry York is now a millennium man.
York (BC'67) earned his 1,000th career coaching victory in college hockey on Friday night in BC's 8-0 win at Hockey East opponent Massachusetts. The Eagles got goals from eight different players, and 20 saves from goaltender Thatcher Demko before a crowd of 4,673 at the Mullins Center in Amherst.
York's overall record now stands at 1,000-595-108 in 44 seasons, including his previous head coaching stints at Clarkson and Bowling Green. He can also claim a 533-260-74 mark in 22 campaigns at his alma mater, including four of his five NCAA championships.
The fourth-ranked Eagles (16-4-3 overall, 9-1-3 HEA) return to conference action tonight (weather pending) at home against Connecticut. According to BCEagles.com, York will be publicly honored for his 1,000th win prior to BC's home game on Feb. 5 against New Hampshire.
