Report: Jack Parker set to retire from BU
Legendary Boston University hockey coach Jack Parker will announce his retirement Monday, ESPN reported Sunday.

Legendary Boston University hockey coach Jack Parker will announce his retirement Monday, ESPN reported Sunday.

Parker, who has coached the Terriers for 40 seasons, will turn 68 on Monday.

Parker has won three national championships and led BU to 24 NCAA hockey tournament berths, the most by any coach. His 894 career victories are the most by a coach with one school, and third most all-time, trailing current Boston College coach Jerry York and former Michigan State coach Ron Mason. Parker has also guided BU to seven Hockey East titles and 21 Beanpot championships.

The Terriers finished the 2012-13 regular seasons with a record of 18-15-2. They will host Merrimack in the quarterfinals of the Hockey East tournament next weekend.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
