Hockey East reprimands coaches Cronin, Parker

Hockey East announced Thursday that it had written letters of reprimand to Northeastern head coach Greg Cronin and Boston University head coach Jack Parker for their actions following the March 13 quarterfinal game at Agganis Arena.

Post-game that night, Cronin and Parker allegedly had a face-to-face argument on the ice and the referees had to separate the two.

Both coaches have acknowledged that their behavior was inappropriate and all parties involved have issued appropriate apologies.

The reprimands were issued jointly by Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna and Massachusetts director of athletics John McCutcheon, the chair of the Hockey East Executive Committee.
