Even coaches get injured sometimes, too.

After a two-game absence with a bad back, Boston University hockey coach Jack Parker will return to his normal position behind the bench as the Terriers take on North Dakota on Friday. It will mark the first game outside of Hockey East for BU this season, and they have a tough task ahead of them taking on the No. 5 team in the nation on the road.

Check out the video above for Jamison Coyle's interview with Parker and the scouting report on the Fighting Sioux. Also, be sure to catch the game itself, airing Friday at 8:30 p.m. ET live on NESN.
