Being a local kid and the son of two former Eagle athlete, was Boston College always the dream school for you?
“It was a place that I always wanted to go, and I thought it presented the best opportunity when I was deciding where to go to school. I’ve never regretted my decision to come to BC. I’ve had bumps in the road, injuries and it hasn’t always gone the way I would have liked it to go, but my experience here has been great. I’m really looking forward to one more great season here with my teammates.”
What is it like to play for Jerry York, the winningest coach in the history of college hockey?
“It’s obviously very special to have a coach of his caliber leading your team. He’s been so successful over so many years and has changed the game of college hockey. I think it’s just been awesome to be a part of his legacy ... [to] see exactly how he pushes our team. It was always my dream to play for Coach York, growing up as a Boston kid who watched so many successful BC teams. I’ve always wanted to play here, win a Beanpot and things like that, so hopefully we’ll be able to get that done this year.”
