Ducks GM Bob Murray extended through 2020

The Anaheim Ducks franchise announced that general manager Bob Murray has been offered a four-year contract extension. The four years, combined with the two years remaining on his current contract will take Murray through 2020.

 


Murray held the title of senior vice president of hockey operations prior to taking over for former GM Brian Burke in 2008. Despite not winning a Stanley Cup while Murray has been GM, the Ducks have made it to the playoffs four times as well as becoming Pacific Division champions twice.

“Working with the Ducks and the Samuelis is an honor,” Murray said. “This is the right place for me and my family, and I’m very grateful to have the opportunity.”

Ducks CEO Michael Schulman made the following statement:

“We’re very pleased to extend Bob’s contract. Since taking over as general manager, he has meticulously added youth, skill and depth to the organization. Having been in the NHL for the last 39 consecutive years, he has outstanding knowledge and expertise for the job. He’s the right man to continue leading the hockey club going forward.”
