Hakstol helped lead UND to a fourth-place finish in the WCHA, a Broadmoor Trophy as the league’s postseason champion and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, despite the team not having enough players to fill out a full lineup for a third of the season.

    Congrats to Hak on a fine season. There really is only one thing left for him to do. Win the big one.

    Congratulations to Mr. Hakstol. Well deserved recognition. A special congratulations to the entire Coaching Staff because as much as this is an achievement awarded to a Head Coach, this recognition is a credit to an entire Coaching Staff’s hard work, dedication, and commitment to preparing each week.

    Well deserved Hak and the rest of the staff. I thought it was his best year of coaching to date. Hopefully next year we can stay healthy and get some bounces in the playoffs.

    Great to see at least 4 former Sioux in the NHL with Parise, Toews, Oshie and Greene. Two captains, an assistant captain, and a teams leading scorer. Plus a head coach. Very impressive.

    Righted a wrong in the WCHA. Good luck in the USCHO choice this week. Should have been a contender for the Penrose (Daniels/Ferris State won it).

    Well deserved. This year was without a doubt, in my honest opinion, the best job Hak & crew have done at UND.
