Rush sign Daniel Tetrault to two-year contract extension

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Rush announced on Tuesday that the organization has signed head coach Daniel Tetrault to a two-year contract extension with a mutual option for a third year.

Tetrault just completed his third season as the Rush head coach and finished with his best record since taking over the team.

Through 60 games, Tetrault led the Rush to a 29-25-5-1 record and 64 points in the standings.

Tetrault’s relationship with Rapid City has spanned over six seasons.

After wrapping up his hockey career with the Rush in 2015, the 40-year old was promoted to head coach in June of 2017.

Tetrault says he’s excited about staying in Rapid City.

“Negotiations with our team president Todd Mackin was pretty easy,” Rush head coach Daniel Tetrault said. “This is where I want to coach. I believe we have unfinished business from last season. Unfortunately, it ended up short and brief with 12 games to go.”

Tetrault was part of one championship team as a player, in 2014 with the Allen Americans.
