UND hockey coach Dave Hakstol

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - University of North Dakota co-acting athletic directors Betty Ralston and Steve Brekke announced today that UND head men's hockey coach Dave Hakstol has been suspended for its next two games for his actions during a men's hockey game Saturday at the University of Minnesota.

Ralston said the disciplinary action was determined by the University of North Dakota and was made independent of any decision or action by the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

"We hold all University of North Dakota coaches and student-athletes to the highest standards of sportsmanship, conduct and ethical behavior," Ralston said. "We expect our coaches to keep themselves and their teams in control at all times. Profane language and poor behavior on the part of our coaches and student-athletes is unacceptable."
