The Boston College Eagles are champions of the college hockey world.
And they are all yours.
The BC goalie is from East Falmouth. One of the captains is from Milton, Massachusetts. They’ve got players from Weymouth, Boxford, Springfield, Reading, Braintree, Dorchester, Shrewsbury, and Needham. They’ve got a skater from Biddeford, Maine, and another one from Wallingford, Conn.
Oh, the coach is a New Englander, too. Try to find somebody in Watertown who hasn’t bumped into Jerry York at the Dunkin’ Donuts on Mt. Auburn Street.
Accepting the championship trophy after last night’s 5-0 thrashing of Wisconsin in the Frozen Four final, York said, “We’re going to bring it right back to Commonwealth Avenue.’’
Cheers to York for keeping his roster peppered with kids who grew up skating in MDC rinks. Double cheers for a program that has a quartet of seniors, all on schedule to graduate with their classmates May 24.
