The Boston College Eagles downed Ferris State 4-1 Saturday night to earn its fifth national championship in program history.

Nelson Minor Hockey graduate Isaac MacLeod is a sophomore defenceman with the Eagles who celebrated their win before a huge crowd at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Junior goaltender Parker Milner recorded 27 saves en route to being named the 2012 Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player.

“I feel honored and privileged to be a part of the BC program, the university and specifically the hockey program,” senior captain Tommy Cross told media after the game. “This was the best team I’ve ever been on. We just had something in our mind that the season was only going to end one way and that was our main focus.”

The Nelson Star will have more on this story later in the week, including comments from MacLeod.
