He will be introduced Tuesday afternoon on Augustana's campus.

I am incredibly humbled and honored to have been chosen as the first leader of Augustana Men's Hockey. This is the right time, at the right university, with the right leadership, to bring Division I College Hockey to South Dakota! My family and I are excited to become a part of the Sioux Falls community, we can't wait!

Raboin just completed his fourth season as an assistant coach with the University of Minnesota. Prior to joining Minnesota, he was an assistant coach at SCSU.

Raboin, who graduated from SCSU in 2010, was a three-year captain for the Huskies and led the team to three NCAA Tournament appearances, and was also a two-time All-WCHA selection.
