DALLAS (AP) -The Dallas Stars rewarded coach Dave Tippett for a trip to the Western Conference finals by adding two years to his deal, keeping him under contract through the 2010-11 season.
It's his second extension in a short time: He was signed for 2008-09 in December.
``Dave has proven to be a great leader on the Stars bench and we are pleased to have him under contract for the next three seasons,'' co-general manager Brett Hull said Monday.
Tippett's teams have made the playoffs in all six seasons he's been in charge. His overall regular-season record is 235-127-48.
The 46-year-old coach has guided Dallas to two 50-win seasons, with three finishes among the goal-scoring leaders and three seasons among the fewest in goals-against. Before getting into coaching, he played 721 games over 11 years with Hartford, Washington, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
