Email

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota hockey coach Don Lucia has agreed to terms on a contract extension through the 2014-15 season.

The school announced the deal Wednesday.

After winning consecutive national championships in 2002 and 2003, the Gophers have fallen off in recent years and missed the NCAA tournament three straight seasons. Lucia dealt with a rare disease during the 2008-09 season that caused numbness, headaches and forced him away from the team for days at a time.
