College Hockey:
Parker’s jersey retirement ceremony at Boston University slated for Feb. 15

Boston University will officially retire Jack Parker’s No. 6 in a ceremony during the Terriers’ game against New Hampshire on Saturday, Feb. 15, at Agganis Arena.

Parker’s No. 6, the number he wore as a player, will join Travis Roy’s No. 24 as the only retired numbers in the program’s history.

The intention to retire Parker’s number was announced in April 2013.

“Needless to say, this is a very deserving honor for a man who will always be synonymous with BU hockey,” said BU assistant vice president and director of athletics Mike Lynch in a statement. “Coach Parker’s legacy speaks for itself and we’re looking forward to adding a spot next to Travis Roy’s No. 24 banner in the rafters of Agganis.”

Parker, a 1968 BU graduate, retired in March 2013 following 40 seasons at the helm of the BU program and was head coach of the Terriers for Hockey East’s first 29 seasons.
