Longtime Boston University men's hockey coach Jack Parker is recovering from heart bypass surgery.

Mike Lynch, BU's assistant vice president and director of athletics, confirmed the operation, which took place July 23, and said in a statement that the 65-year-old Parker is expected to be completely healthy for the start of the 2010-11 season, which will be his 38th behind the bench.

"The entire BU community wishes Jack a speedy recovery and respects his privacy during this time,'' said Lynch. "We look forward to seeing him lead the Terriers on the ice this fall. ''Winners of the 2009 NCAA championship, BU finished last season with an overall record of 18-17-3 (13-12-2 in Hockey East) and lost to Maine in the semifinals of the Hockey East tournament. The Terriers open the 2010-11 campaign in St. Louis against Wisconsin in the annual IceBreaker Tournament, which begins Oct. 8.
