A native of Elk River, Minn., Martin will assist the Gophers on and off the ice as part of the Gopher Grad Program while finishing his bachelor's degree at the University of Minnesota.

"Guys like Paul Martin don't come around very often, so the fact we are getting him for a second tour of duty is really exciting for our program," Motzko, who coached Martin during his collegiate career with the Gophers, said. "Between his experience and accomplishments as a hockey player and his leadership and involvement with the Shine A Ligh7 Foundation, we know that Paul can help our current players develop in nearly every way imaginable." 

A native of Elk River, Minn., Martin was a three-year letter winner for the Maroon & Gold while recording 97 points (20 goals, 77 assists) in 127 career games at Minnesota. The defenseman, who was an all-conference selection in each of his three seasons of college hockey, helped the Gophers to three-straight NCAA tournament appearances including back-to-back national championships in 2002 and 2003. 

Martin, who also won the Broadmoor Trophy with Minnesota in 2003 as WCHA playoff champions, was a Second Team All-American in 2003 while also earning his second-straight Second Team All-WCHA accolade. The defenseman was also named to the WCHA All-Rookie Team in 2001. Martin remains 15th in Gopher Hockey history among defensemen with 97 points while he is 12th among defensemen with 77 assists. 

A second round selection (62nd overall) in 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Martin went on to play 14 seasons in the NHL with the New Jersey Devils, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the San Jose Sharks with 870 regular-season appearances and 320 career points (50 goals, 270 assists). Moreover, the defenseman led his teams to the playoff in each of his 14 seasons with 122 Stanley Cup playoff games and 46 playoff points (six goals 40 assists). With the exception of a short AHL stint in his final season on the ice and one season in Switzerland during the 2004-05 NHL lockout, Martin played his entire professional career in the NHL before retiring in 2018. 

On the international stage, Martin was named to the U.S. Men's Olympic Team three times in his career (2006, 2010, 2014). Prior to joining the Gophers, Martin closed out his prep career at Elk River High School as the Mr. Hockey Award winner in 2000 as the top senior high school boy's hockey player in the state of Minnesota. 

Off the ice, Martin created the Shine A Ligh7 Foundation in 2017. The Shine A Ligh7 Foundation is a non-profit organization raises awareness and reduces the stigma for those affected by

Northern State University head women’s basketball coach, Paul Krueger announced today the completion of her 2020-21 staff with the addition of Tony Nakashima. Nakashima spent the 2019-20 season at Kentucky as the women’s basketball video coordinator.

Prior to the cancellation of the NCAA Tournament due to COVID-19, Kentucky went 22-8 overall and 10-6 in the SEC last season.

 

“I am so excited and blessed to join the Northern State family,” said Nakashima. “I would like to thank Coach Krueger for giving me the opportunity to be a part of something special. I look forward to learning and growing with this staff and team every day as well as developing strong relationships with our student-athletes.”

 

From 2016-19, Nakashima was an assistant on the Montana Western staff, which led the Bulldogs to an 81-22 record and three straight trips to the NAIA National Tournament. Nakashima coached five All-Americans and seven Daktronics Scholar-Athletes at UMW. In 2018-19, the Bulldogs won their first NAIA National Championship and saw two student-athletes earn All-American accolades; including NAIA and WBCA Player of the Year Bri King.

 

Prior to his time at Montana Western, Nakashima was an assistant coach at Bethany College and began his career at Warner Pacific College. In addition, he coached with the AAU program, Team Concept out of Portland, Oregon. Nakashima is a 2010 graduate of Pacific Union College with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing.

Roster notes: All 11 listed starters were on the Vikings in 2019. Dozier won the starting left guard job in camp, beating out Aviante Collins, who is on the practice squad. Minnesota has five offensive starters who have made at least one Pro Bowl in their careers: Cousins, Cook, Ham, Thielen and Rudolph. Johnson is the starter at wide receiver opposite Thielen, but Jefferson is expected to be a contributor as a first-round rookie.

DEFENSE (24 players listed as they appear on the unofficial depth chart)

Backups: Ifeadi Odenigbo, Jalyn Holmes, Eddie Yarbrough and D.J. Wonnum
