In his typical humble style, the legendary Jerry York didn't plan some grand bash after winning his 925th game Saturday night.

Asked how he planned to celebrate passing Ron Mason to become the winningest NCAA hockey coach in history with a 5-2 victory over the University of Alabama-Huntsville in the Mariucci Classic, the 67-year-old Boston College coach said, "Campus Pizza. It's a short walk and we'll brave the wind."

York said he will look back to the accomplishment "maybe when I sit down on some porch in 10 years."

"Coaches coach. We play to win trophies. Despite all the hoopla, it never really entered my mind," York said. "We always talk in our program, there's no personal goals. We're not trying to become Hobey Baker [winners] and All-Americans.

"Golfers, they want to win a Masters. ... It's not what we're about with the Eagles. I've always been about the team. I haven't really sought individual goals."

The defending national champions, who rank No. 1 in the country, play the Gophers on Sunday night.

York has won 125 games at Clarkson, 342 at Bowling Green and 458 in 19 seasons at Boston College. He has won five national championships -- four at Boston College -- and guided the Eagles to 10 Frozen Four berths since 1998.

He became a head coach in 1972. How much longer will he coach?

"I feel good, I feel healthy, I enjoy what I do," York said. "As long as BC feels I've done a good job, I'll keep on moving."
