Today's Thought

The reason I am alive today in NOT because in my darkest days I held on to God. It's because in my darkest days God held on to me. It is HIS faithfulness that is great, not ours.

    MINOT, N.D. (MSU) - Nat Wagner has been named the Minot State head softball coach, Director of Athletics Andy Carter announced today. Wagner becomes the sixth head coach in program history since the 1971 season.
 
    Wagner arrives at Minot State after a three-year stint as an assistant coach at Augustana. In the three-year span, he helped lead the program to a 143-42 record with three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and Top 25 finishes, including winning the 2019 NCAA DII National Championship.
 
    As a primary hitting instructor and first base coach, Wagner led the Vikings to repeatedly break school records in batting average, stolen bases and runs scored. Off the field, he served as lead recruiting coordinator, corresponding with recruits and coordinating visits while leading youth clinics, fundraising drives and community outreach for the program.
 
    Prior to Augustana, Wagner served as an assistant coach at Valley City State for one season. He began his coaching career as a head coach at New Prague High School in New Prague, Minn.
 
    Wagner replaces Dave Kivett who's contract was not renewed after two seasons. Minot State finished the 2019 season with a 26-23 overall record while clinching an NSIC Tournament berth for the third consecutive season.

     NHL-SHARKS-KARLSSON

     SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks have re-signed pending free agent defenseman Erik Karlsson to a $92 million, eight-year deal. The Sharks announced the deal two weeks before Karlsson was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The deal is said to carry an annual cap hit of $11.5 million and includes a full no-movement clause.

     The Sharks acquired the two-time Norris Trophy winner just before the start of last season from Ottawa as a one-year rental. Karlsson was hampered by groin injuries for much of his first season in San Jose but also showed flashes as he helped the Sharks reach the Western Conference final, where they lost to eventual champion St. Louis in six games.

     Elsewhere in the NHL:

     - Dallas Eakins is the Anaheim Ducks' new coach. The Ducks filled the NHL's last head coaching vacancy with the veteran coach of their AHL affiliate in San Diego. Eakins coached the Edmonton Oilers from the start of the 2013-14 season until December 2014, going 36-63-14. Eakins spent the past four seasons with the Gulls, leading them to the AHL's conference finals this season.
