Burkholder gets extension at Niagara August 8, 2012 8:39 AM

Niagara Purple Eagles athletic director Ed McLaughlin announced on Tuesday that Dave Burkholder’s contract has been extended through the 2016-17 season. Details of the agreement were not disclosed.

Burkholder, a former standout Rochester Institute of Technology goaltender, has compiled a 191-165-45 record in his 11 years as head coach and drove the Purple Eagles to two College Hockey America playoff titles and subsequent NCAA tournament appearances. He was named CHA coach of the year twice.

The extension is scheduled to keep Burkholder at Niagara for five years after this season, the length of the deal makes a statement on the confidence the school has in his leadership.

Twenty-one graduated student-athletes who were coached under Burkholder are still active professionally in North America or Europe, with Scott Arnold (Phoenix Coyotes) and goaltender Chris Noonan (Toronto Marlies) being the most recent to join the professional ranks. Eleven graduates are still involved in the game as full-time coaches.
