On the ice: 1 coach honored, another hoping for success

Hockey coaches: York & Gjurich

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Former Clarkson men's hockey coach Jerry York will be one of six new members of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

York began his coaching career with Clarkson in 1972 and coached the Golden Knights until 1979.

During that time he won 125 games, made six trips to the ECAC playoffs, and wonn the NCAA Division I Coach of the Year for 1976-77.

York moved on to Bowling Green and Boston College, where he won five national championships and became the only Division I head coach with over 1,000 wins in his career.

Wolves’ Tyler Gjurich

The Watertown Wolves' Tyler Gjurich hopes he can have as much success as York someday.

Earlier this week, the Wolves named Gjurich an assistant coach to go along with his playing duties.

Gjurich led the Federal Hockey League in scoring last season and the Wolves are hoping that leadership on the ice can translate off the ice as well for the upcoming season.

You can hear from both coaches in the video.
