MINNEAPOLIS -- Mike Yeos three-year run in Minnesota has been anything but easy. The Wild coach has had to navigate key injuries to his roster, his own growing pains in his first NHL head coaching job and the considerable expectations brought forth when the teams owner spent nearly $200 million on two players two summers ago. The Wild have improved under Yeo in each season, and Yeo has improved himself enough to earn the faith of the Wild leadership going forward. Yeo signed a multi-year contract extension with the Wild on Saturday, the team announced. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the agreement was expected after Yeo guided the team out of the first round of the playoffs for just the second time in franchise history in the final year of his original deal. He has gone 104-82-26 in three seasons with the Wild. "Mike has done a very good job the last three seasons as our head coach and we look forward to his leadership going forward," Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said. Yeo was an unproven coach with no NHL head coaching track record to go by when Fletcher picked him to take over for Todd Richards three seasons ago. The Wild faded after a strong start to Yeos first season and never found a rhythm in his second year, an abbreviated 48-game schedule due to the lockout. The Wild did snap a five-season playoff drought in his second season, but were dominated by Chicago in a first-round defeat. His status was tenuous at best by New Years Eve last season, when the Wild lost their sixth straight game and Yeo felt compelled at the next practice to tell the players he wouldnt coach simply to save his job. But despite foot injuries that kept stars Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu and key defenceman Jared Spurgeon out for long stretches of the winter, Yeo helped hold the group together while the wins picked up. The Wild played all season with a carousel in the net, too, with four different goalies starting 10 games each or more. "There were times where the wheels couldve come off, and he kept it together," said defenceman Ryan Suter, one of several players to endorse Yeo after the season-ending loss to Chicago. The Wild solidified his status in the playoffs with a seven-game victory over Colorado in the first round when the Avalanche led 2-0 and 3-2 in the series. They gave the Blackhawks a fight, too, until falling in six games. The late-season surge, and Yeos impressive strategic decisions both rounds of the playoffs, gave Fletcher the faith that he had the right man for the job. "I am very excited to continue to coach the Minnesota Wild and pursue a Stanley Cup for the State of Hockey," Yeo said. "Our fan support has been amazing and it went to a new level during the playoffs this season. We are all motivated to reward them." Bayern Munich Jerseys .

The Oilers agreed to terms with the 24-year-old on a US$3.675-million, one-year contract Friday that puts him in line to make him a restricted free agent again next off-season. Schultz said the one-year deal means he has to perform. "I just got to prove that Im worth that longer-term money and they want me here for a longer term," Schultz said in a phone interview. "I want to be here and Ive got to make sure I improve my defensive game and know I can play against other teams top lines without them worrying about me out there and being able to put me out in all situations." General manager Craig MacTavish said signing Schultz to a one-year deal was a chance to buy the organization more time to evaluate him. MacTavish added it was difficult to agree on a longer-term value given the small sample size of the defencemans career. "We as an organization wanted a little bit more information, fully aware that information can be expensive," MacTavish said at a news conference in Edmonton. Schultz led Oilers defencemen in ice time in 2013-14 at over 23 minutes a game. His offensive numbers are no problem, as he put up 11 goals and 22 assists in 74 games. The Kelowna, B.C., native, enjoyed the bigger role rookie coach Dallas Eakins gave him last season. "Im more comfortable," Schultz said. "I felt as the year went on last year, I got better in my own end and on the penalty kill and all that. Its always something Ive got to work on. I think Im improving and hopefully start this year off solid and keep er going." MacTavish took issue with the notion that Schultz was weak in the defensive end. "Ive always believed that hes very good defensively," MacTavish said. "He showed me at the end of last year that he really was managing the decisions that you need the experience to manage the decisions on when to go, when to stay backk, when to probe offensively, when to get back.ddddddddddddquot; The Oilers won the Schultz sweepstakes in the summer of 2012 after the Ducks 2008 draft pick didnt sign with Anaheim when he was done playing at the University of Wisconsin. During the 2012-13 lockout, Schultz was the AHLs leading scorer with 18 goals and 30 assists in 34 games for the Oklahoma City Barons. MacTavish said a rookie defenceman leading the AHL in points is something that only happens to great players and believes his ceiling is beyond great. "I think that Justin has Norris Trophy potential, and I dont think there are too many people that would disagree with me in that regard," MacTavish said. In 122 career NHL games, Schultz has 19 goals and 41 assists for 60 points. During that time, the Oilers have continued their playoff drought, which dates to 2007, the year after Edmonton lost to the Carolina Hurricanes in the Stanley Cup final. "Its obviously a work in progress," Schultz said. "I knew we werent going to win right away. But weve got all the talent in the world and its just a matter of time before we start turning things around." Beyond Schultz, the Oilers have been building around first-round picks Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. Schultz could soon be joined on the blue-line by 2013 first-rounder Darnell Nurse. For now, the Oilers defence is made up of Schultz, captain Andrew Ference, Martin Marincin, Jeff Petry, free-agent additions Mark Fayne and Keith Aulie and trade acquisition Nikita Nikitin. Nikitin is the highest-paid of that group going into the first season of a $9-million, two-year deal that counts $4.5 million against the salary cap. If Schultz can continue his career progression, hes likely headed toward a much richer pay day. In the process, he hopes to help the Oilers make the playoffs. "Ive only had two years in the NHL," he said. "Its a big year for me next year, for our team."
