THE DICK UMILE ERA: Dick Umile, a five-time Hockey East Coach of the Year, enters his 20th season as the head coach of the UNH Wildcats. He earned his fourth Leonard Fowle New England Coach of the Year award following the 2007-08 season. After signing a long-term contract in 2008, Umile will conclude his coaching career at his alma mater. During his time spent at UNH, Umile has molded UNH hockey into one of the top programs in all of Division I hockey, guiding the Wildcats to four Frozen Four appearances, 15 NCAA tournament appearances and 19 Hockey East championship tournament showings in his 19-year career in Durham. In addition, Umile has posted 17 20-victory campaigns over the span of 19 seasons, including a current streak of 13 20-win seasons. Umile is now the winningest coach in the history of UNH hockey with 444 career victories. He surpassed legendary coach Charlie Holt on Feb. 16, 2005 in a 6-1 victory at Merrimack at Thom Lawler Arena in North Andover, Mass. Umile ranks fourth among active NCAA coaches with a .652 winning percentage and on the active victories list his 444 victories ranks eighth among NCAA coaches.

After struggling through a 1-5-2 stretch in November, New Hampshire went 14-4-2 to close out the regular season and claimed third place in the league and home-ice in the Hockey East quarterfinals for a Hockey East-best 13th straight season.
