Winnipeg Jets extend head coach Paul Maurice through 2017-18 season

The Winnipeg Jets aren’t in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year but that hasn’t stopped the team from getting excited about their future. While a trip to the postseason eluded the Jets this year, they’ll be back at it next year and the next three after that with head coach Paul Maurice leading the way.

According to Jets beat writer Gary Lawless, Winnipeg has handed head coach Paul Maurice a four-year contract extension.

 

The contract extension will keep Maurice on the bench through the 2017-18 season and gives the Jets some continuity to work with as they continue to build their team into a Stanley Cup contender.

It wasn’t their year this season but with star Evander Kane and a growing roster balanced with veteran talent and rising stars, the Jets seem poised to pop int he near future and they’ve locked down their head coach to make sure things go as smoothly as possible.
