Boston College signs hockey coach York to extension
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College has signed hockey coach Jerry York to a contract extension.
The school said Monday that the five-time NCAA champion received a multiyear deal. It did not elaborate.
York is college hockey's winningest coach with 1,063 career victories heading into Monday night's Beanpot championship game against Northeastern. It is his 25th season in Chestnut Hill. He has won four NCAA titles at his alma mater and also led Bowling Green to the 1984 championship.
Boston College, playing with its NCAA tournament hopes on the line, got two goals from Ryan Fitzgerald and a career-high 42 saves from Joe Woll to upset Boston University, 3-2, last night at the Garden in the Hockey East Championship semifinals.
So where did all the goals come from, Jerry York?
A rejuvenated Boston College offense scored three goals in the first and coasted to a 7-0 victory over Vermont in a Hockey East quarterfinal last night at Kelley Rink.
Dylan Sikura’s late goal lifts Northeastern over BC in Beanpot consolation
Northeastern junior left winger Dylan Sikura has been a third-period scoring threat and he proved it again in last night’s Beanpot consolation game against Boston College at the TD Garden.
At a frozen Fenway Park yesterday, players hailing from Texas and Florida made the difference. No. 8 Boston College used tallies by Lone Star freshman David Cotton and Sunshine State senior Austin Cangelosi to eke out a 3-1 win against Providence College.
