Get well soon, Coach!


Best wishes to Coach York on a speedy recovery. Via

Boston College head men's hockey coach Jerry York underwent successful scleral buckling surgery to repair a detached retina in his right eye this morning and is resting comfortably at home. His status is day-to-day. The procedure was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Heier at Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston.

York underwent an initial procedure on Jan. 10 and a follow-up procedure on Jan. 14 for a detached retina. He has missed five games because of the injury - four in January after the initial surgeries as well as the team's most recent 4-1 home victory over Vermont that clinched a berth in the Hockey East Tournament's semifinal round at TD Garden.

Associate head coaches Greg Brown and Mike Cavanaugh will continue to lead the team in York's absence.

Boston College hockey is back in action this Friday against Boston University in the Hockey East semis. Looks like the Eagles will send Jack Parker off into retirement with Coaches Brown and Cavanaugh behind the bench on Friday night.
