« 2011-12 2013–14 »
The 2012–13 Boston College Eagles men's ice hockey team represents Boston College in the 2012–13 NCAA Division I men's ice hockey season. The team is coached by Jerry York, '67, his nineteenth season behind the bench at Boston College. The Eagles play their home games at Kelley Rink on the campus of Boston College, competing in Hockey East.
BC competed in two in-season tournaments during the 2012–13 season. In December, the Eagles participated in the Mariucci Classic hosted by Minnesota in Minneapolis, losing to host Minnesota in the championship match. BC also competed in the 61st annual Beanpot tournament alongside Boston-area schools Boston University, Harvard, and Northeastern, at TD Garden, defeating Northeastern in the championship to capture their fourth consecutive title.
Despite a strong 22–12–4 record and 15–9–3 in conference play, one point short of the regular season title, the Eagles did not fare well in the postseason. Following a semifinal loss to Boston University in the Hockey East tournament, the Eagles fell to Union College in the first round of NCAA Tournament. However, a few bright spots of the season included sophomore Johnny Gaudreau being a Hobey Baker award finalist after helping the US National Junior team to win a gold medal at the 2013 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia, as well as Head Coach Jerry York became the winningest head coach in NCAA Hockey history, passing Ron Mason, with his 925th win over Alabama-Huntsville in the 2012 Mariucci Classic.

Previous season recap
The Eagles entered the season as the defending national champions, having won the program's fifth NCAA title by defeating Ferris State in the championship game of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. BC also enters the 2012–13 season as defending Hockey East tournament and regular season champions, defeating Maine in the 2012 Hockey East Tournament final and finishing ahead of Boston University and UMass Lowell in the final Hockey East regular season standings. BC also retained the Beanpot in 2012, their third title in a row, by defeating Boston University in overtime of the championship game. The Eagles raised their 2012 National Championship banner to the Conte Forum rafters in their home-opener against Northeastern on October 20, 2012, a 3-0 victory.
April 10, 2012: Juniors Chris Kreider and Brian Dumoulin decided to forgo their senior seasons to pursue professional careers. Kreider joined the New York Rangers, who drafted the forward in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, making his debut for the Rangers during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Dumoulin joined with the Carolina Hurricanes organization, who had drafted him in the second round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He was then traded to the Pittsburg Penguins in the deal for Jordan Staal.
May 15, 2012: Boston College received an anonymous gift of $5 million to endow the men's ice hockey coaching position, the largest gift ever made in support of a BC athletics team.
May 16, 2012: The national championship team was honored in Boston at Boston City Hall and the Massachusetts State House. The Eagles presented Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick with a commemorative hockey jersey.
Boston College adds six freshmen for the 2012-13 season: defenseman Colin Sullivan, a seventh round draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft; defenseman Teddy Doherty, one of three current Eagles who played for Dubuque of the USHL; defenseman Michael Matheson, a first round pick of the Florida Panthers in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft; defenseman Travis Jeke, one of three players for Boston College from Pittsburgh; forward Brendan Silk, a product of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program; and forward Peter McMullen, who earned New Jersey Star Ledger All-State honors in 2010-11 after leading Delbarton Prep in scoring.
