North Dakota signs on Hakstol for 6 years

From University of North Dakota hockey, which will update its blog throughout the day and evening.

Hakstol inked a new, six-year deal that will take him through the 2017-18 season. His base salary will be $300,000.

Since he took over at UND in 2004, the Sioux have scored more goals and won more games than anyone in the WCHA. He has led the Sioux to two MacNaughton Cups, four Broadmoor Trophies and five Frozen Fours.

The Sioux also have been consistent, earning home ice, a Final Five trip and an NCAA tournament berth in each of the last eight seasons. Michigan is the only other team in the country that has made the NCAAs in each of the last eight years.

More will be coming later.

Most victories since 2004

219 — Michigan (Red Berenson)
216 — Boston College (Jerry York)
213 — North Dakota (Dave Hakstol)
200 — Denver (George Gwozdecky)
197 — Miami (Rico Blasi)
