BC coach Jerry York retires; most NCAA hockey wins ever
BOSTON — (AP) — Boston College coach Jerry York, the Hockey Hall of Famer who won five NCAA championships and the most games in college hockey history, said Wednesday that he is retiring. He said he is ready to spend more time traveling with his wife, Bobbie, and watch his grandchildren’s hockey, lacrosse, and soccer games. York was a five-time Hockey East coach of the year, most recently in 2021, and won the national award in 1977. “It is difficult to put into words all that Jerry York means to Boston College,” athletic director Pat Kraft said. In 2012, York surpassed Michigan State's Ron Mason as the winningest coach in college hockey.wftv.com
Panthers hire Peterson, NHL's first Black assistant GM
The Florida Panthers on Tuesday hired Brett Peterson as an assistant general manager, making him the first Black executive to hold that position in the NHL. Peterson's hiring comes days after the nearby Miami Marlins hired Kim Ng as the first female GM in Major League Baseball. The NFL's Miami Dolphins have a Black GM, Chris Grier, and coach, Brian Flores. "It’s a great move by the Florida Panthers, and Wasserman Hockey will certainly miss him," Wasserman Hockey senior vice president Judd Moldaver said in a phone interview. "First person of color that’s been an assistant general manager in the NHL — that’s breaking barriers," York said.
