The Ducks announced today that the club has extended the contract of Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray for two additional seasons. Murray is now under contract through the 2021-22 NHL season.
“Bob has created a winning organization with his commitment and expertise,” said Ducks Chief Executive Officer Michael Schulman. “We are very pleased to be in a position where expectations are high virtually every season, thanks in large part to Bob and his staff. We passionately share a common goal – bringing another Stanley Cup to Orange County.”
A three-time finalist for NHL General Manager of the Year (won in 2013-14), Murray has led Anaheim to the playoffs the last six consecutive seasons (only Pittsburgh has a longer streak) and five consecutive 100+ point seasons (NHL’s longest active streak). The Ducks are the only Western Conference team to play in the Conference Finals in two of the last four seasons and have won a conference-leading 31 playoff games since 2014.
