Former Boston University coach Jack Parker has been named the 2014 Legend of Hockey award from the Hobey Baker Memorial Award Foundation.

A three-time recipient of the Spencer Penrose Award as the Division I men’s coach of the year, Parker retired last season after 40 years coaching the Terriers.

He won three national championships — in 1978, 1995 and 2009 — to go with 11 conference titles and 21 Beanpot crowns.

Parker will be honored along with this year’s Hobey Baker Award winner at a banquet in St. Paul, Minn., on May 29.
