College Hockey

Hakstol Apologizes

At the end of Saturday night’s Gopher/UND series, a scuffle
broke out as the game ended. While officials sorted out
the mess, UND coach Dave Hakstol gave referee Don Adam
the finger during one argument. Hakstol has been suspended
two games for the action.

Hakstol’s apology:

[..snip from Grand Forks Herald, Feb 3rd..]

“I would like to sincerely apologize to our fans, players and
entire program, as well as all college hockey fans, the WCHA
and Don Adam, for my actions during the second period of
last night’s game versus the University of Minnesota,”
Hakstol said. “I’m disappointed in myself for allowing my
emotions and frustrations to get the better of me. I pride
myself in not allowing this type of thing to occur.

“Most importantly, I am a parent before I am a coach,
and I understand the responsibility that we carry as
coaches within the WCHA to young hockey fans and
families everywhere.

“I have evaluated and feel terrible about my actions
and can assure everyone that such a thing will never
happen again.”
