Hamline men's hockey coach Scott Bell resigned after six seasons to "pursue other opportunities," the school said.

Bell guided Hamline to the school's first NCAA tournament appearance in 2010-11 after capturing the MIAC playoff title. He helped turn around a program that had only two conference victories in the two years before he arrived.

A 1995 graduate of the University of Minnesota, Bell was a two-time captain for the Gophers.

Bell said he has accepted a job with Stryker, a medical device company, and will probably stay active in the Upper Midwest Elite hockey league.

"I needed to change the atmosphere and look for something different,'' Bell said.


Saints win

The host Saints scored five runs in the sixth inning in their 7-1 victory over Fargo-Moorhead. The game was delayed more than two hours by rain at Midway Stadium.
