The German Ice Hockey Association has extended the contract with men’s national team head coach and general manager Marco Sturm.

Prior to the start of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games Sturm has signed an agreement for the next four years until 2022 while the team is preparing for the Olympics in Fussen.

“It’s nice that it has worked out before the Olympics. Basically we’ve always been on the same wavelength. Now we want to continue the taken path. I still like the work a lot and I’m looking forward to the upcoming years because we have a lot of work ahead,” said Sturm.

The former NHLer has joined the German Ice Hockey Association in 2015. During the past two years he reached the World Championship quarter-finals twice and won the Olympic Qualification event to bring his team to PyeongChang 2018.
