Boston College coach Jerry York was not behind the bench Saturday night for his teamís second game of the Hockey East quarterfinals against Vermont at Conte Forum, having suffered a detached retina in his right eye for the second time this year.
York is scheduled for surgery on Monday morning and will miss the remainder of the quarterfinal series. It wasnít known how long he would remain away from the team.
York had surgery in January to repair a detached retina and appeared to be doing well in his recovery. He appeared fine after the fifth-ranked Eagles beat Vermont, 4-2, Friday night in the first game of their best-of-three series.
But after BCís team meeting Saturday morning, York experienced gray vision in the eye, a BC spokesman said. He then sought medical advice.
Associate head coaches Mike Cavanaugh and Greg Brown will coach the Eagles in Yorkís absence.
