Legends in the Game

Since college hockey has seen its popularity explode over the last few decades, a lot of the men who helped build the game to what it is today are still close by. Among them:

Red Berenson: The Michigan coach already had a Jack Adams Trophy as the NHL Coach of the Year before he returned to his alma mater and led the Wolverines back to national prominence.

Ron Mason: For years Berenson's counterpart in MSU-Michigan games, the sport's all-time winningest coach is now the Spartans' athletic director.

Jack Parker: Parker and Boston University hockey will forever be thought of as one. He turned down the Bruins head coaching job a few years ago; now one of his former players, Mike Sullivan, has it.

Jeff Sauer: The two-time national champion head coach at Wisconsin still works tirelessly behind the scenes for the sport, and pens an occasional column for Inside College Hockey.

Jerry York: He has coached NHL general managers at Clarkson (Dave Taylor) and Bowling Green (George McPhee). His star this year at BC, Patrick Eaves, may never run an NHL franchise, but he just might win the Hobey Baker Award.
