DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have signed coach Dave Tippett to a one-year contract extension, through the end of the 2008-09 season.

Tippett is 212-109-45 in five seasons, the best record among active coaches. The 46-year-old has led the Stars to two 50-win seasons.

"Dave has don an outstanding job since the day he started here in Dallas and we expect that to continue," co-general manager Les Jackson said in a statement Friday.

Tippett's deal was set to expire in June.
