MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Boston College coach Jerry York became the NCAA hockey career victory leader Saturday, directing the top-ranked Eagles to a 5-2 win over Alabama-Huntsville on Saturday in the Mariucci Classic.
York has 925 victories in 41 seasons to move past former Michigan State coach Ron Mason for the record. York is 925-558-95 overall and 458-223-61 in 19 seasons at Boston College.
