Huskies, coach sign extension for five years

The Saint Mary’s Huskies have signed men’s hockey coach Trevor Stienburg to a five-year contract extension.

Stienburg, head coach of the Huskies for 13 seasons, has a career record of 182-121-24 and is entering the final season of a three-year contract. The new pact runs through the end of the 2014-15 Atlantic University Sport campaign.

“We’re happy to have Trevor behind the bench for the Huskies for the next five years,” said Steve Sarty, the school’s athletics director. “He’s a tremendous asset to the hockey program and the university community at large.”

Stienburg, a former NHLer, led the Huskies to an AUS title last season.

The Huskies visit the Dalhousie Tigers on Friday at 7 p.m. at Memorial Arena to open a new season.
