After coaching 1,387 college hockey games, Ron Mason says he still can't get enough of the sport.
"When I look back at it now, 36 years, I can't believe that I was actually in it that long," Mason said. "I still love the game, I watch it all the time on television and appreciate how it's played, how it's officiated, and how we support it."
USA Hockey on Thursday announced the longtime coach will be inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame, along with Bill Guerin, Doug Weight, Cindy Curley and Peter Karmanos Jr.
"While [Ron] always cared about whoever his employer was, he always put the overall good of college hockey first, as top priority," said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey.
