The 2010-2011 Boston College Eagles men's ice hockey team will represent Boston College in the 2010-2011 college hockey season. The team is coached by Jerry York, '67, who is entering his seventeenth season behind the bench at Boston College. The Eagles will play their home games at Kelley Rink on the campus of Boston College, and will compete in Hockey East.

The Eagles raised their 2010 National Championship banner in their home opener against Merrimack on October 29, 2010. BC skated to a 3-2 victory.
