ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - When the Minnesota Wild hired Mike Yeo as a first-time NHL head coach three years ago, they wanted someone who could develop several top young players.

Yeo has undergone his own growth in that time, too, and the Wild were satisfied enough with the results that they've made another commitment to him.

After finalizing Yeo's three-year contract extension last weekend, Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher appeared with the coach at a news conference Friday to discuss the deal and the team's future.

The Wild advanced to the second round of the playoffs for only the second time in franchise history, and Fletcher praised Yeo's ability to help keep the players on an even keel during some challenging stretches of the season while the injuries piled up.
