Congratulations, Jerry

We know that Jerry York is the best. Now his record reaffirms it. With the win over BU Saturday night York tied Ron Mason as College Hockey's all-time wins leader.

The game itself was a nice rebound from Friday's loss to BU. BC broke away with two goals less than a minute apart late in the Second. York will own the record shortly. His first shot comes next week against Providence.

Hockey has been BC's one consistently excellent sport over the last five decades, going back to Snooks Kelley.
Congratulations to Jerry, a double eagle, ( BC High ) and a hallmark of " ever to excel"

Congrats to Mr. York. He is the best, but the reason he's here is because of how horrible we were in the early 90's. Even the hockey program has had it's ups and downs.

And, this proves a point. BC, for many years, was an also-ran in hockey. Good sometimes but great not very often. Football can be like this. Yes, there are far more football temas in competition for the best scholar athletes, but it can be done. Duke does it in basketball. ND and Stanford do it in football. We can also excel. Be positive.

My heartiest congratulations to Jerry York. He is the epitome of class. I went up for the weekend and attended both games because I wanted to be on hand for a once-in-a-lifetime moment in BC history. His team played both games with class and grace despite BU's best efforts to goon things up, especially Sat. nite. The students were loud, engaged and packed Conte Forum. I'm proud for Jerry, his team and BC and here's to another 924 wins.

Adding to what Scoop said above ... The success on the ice -- the wins and trophies -- that York has produced is made so much sweeter by the character of the teams he produces, which was so clearly highlighted by the contrast with this weekend's opponent. I know our players aren't all choir boys on or off the ice, and BU's players aren't all thugs all the time. But, the display on the ice this weekend was an accurate reflection of the different personalities and values of the head coaches, and I was very proud to be rooting for the Eagles.
