Boston College Eagles men's ice hockey seasons
« 2008-09 2010-11 »

The 2009-2010 Boston College Eagles men's ice hockey team represented Boston College in the 2009-2010 college hockey season. The team was coached by Jerry York, '67, his sixteenth season behind the bench at Boston College. The Eagles played their home games at Kelley Rink on the campus of Boston College, and competed in Hockey East.

Boston College defeated Wisconsin 5-0 in the 2010 Frozen Four Championship Game, earning the school's fourth national championship and second title in three years. The Eagles defeated Alaska and Yale in the Northeast Regional in Worcester, earning them a berth in the Frozen Four to be played at Ford Field in Detroit. BC defeated Miami (OH) 7-1 in the national semifinal, the fourth time in five years that the Eagles ended the RedHawks' season in the NCAA Tournament, before meeting Wisconsin in the final. The game was played before a record crowd of 37,592, the largest to attend an indoor hockey game.[1] The 5-0 win in the National Championship Game was also Jerry York's 850th career victory.

After finishing second behind New Hampshire in the 2009-2010 Hockey East Regular Season, the Eagles won the 2010 Hockey East Tournament, defeating Maine 7-6 in overtime in the championship game, gaining their record ninth league title. BC also won the 2010 Beanpot Tournament, defeating rivals Boston University 4-3 in the final game to earn their fifteenth championship.

On January 8, 2010, Boston College and Boston University faced off at Fenway Park in the first men's college hockey game played at the home of the Boston Red Sox. BU edged BC 3-2 before a sellout crowd of 38,472.[2]

Boston College added nine freshmen for the 2009-2010 season, including four defensemen, four forwards, and one goalie.
