RIT coach Wayne Wilson captained the 1984 Bowling Green national championship team, coached by current Boston College coach Jerry York.

“To be in my first Frozen Four as a coach with Jerry York, who was my coach (at Bowling Green) is pretty unique,” he said.

Asked if he had drawn on any memories from his time at the Frozen Four as a player, Wilson said he advised his team to enjoy every moment.

“If I had any regrets, it’s that I didn’t take it all in enough,” he said. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, so make the most of it and have fun with it. But at the same time we’re focused on winning a hockey game and I think we’re ready.”
