York Ties All-Time Wins Mark

Jerry York tied Ron Mason's all-time wins mark Saturday night at Conte Forum on the campus of Boston College. With the Eagles' 5-2 win over arch-rival Boston University, York recorded his 924th career victory. BC had lost the night before, 4-2, at BU.

York will go for win 925, which would be the record breaker, Friday night at Providence. Following that game, the Eagles will play Alabama-Huntsville and Minnesota in the Mariucci Classic. Thus, it looks highly unlikely York will be able to break the record at home.

The former BC player is one of the class acts in all of sports. Under his watch, the BC hockey program was reinvigorated, making numerous Frozen Fours, and capturing the 2001, 2008, 2010 and 2012 NCAA Championships. The Watertown, MA native also won the 1984 NCAA Championship while at Bowling Green and got his start in coaching at Clarkson.
