The Minnesota Wild have agreed to a multi-year extension with head coach Mike Yeo, the team announced on Saturday.

The 40-year-old guided the Wild (43-27-12) to the second round of the playoffs for the second time in franchise history, where they lost to the Blackhawks in six games.

In three seasons with Minnesota, Yeo is 104-82-26 in the regular season and 7-9 in the postseason.

”I am very excited to continue to coach the Minnesota Wild and pursue a Stanley Cup for the State of Hockey,” Yeo said in a statement. “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.”

Before last season, the Wild hadn't made the playoffs since 2008. Their first-round series win over the Avalanche was their first since 2003.
