The New Jersey Devils signed general manager Tom Fitzgerald to a multiyear contract extension Tuesday, also giving him the additional title of president of hockey operations.

The Devils have been one of the fastest-rising and most-improved teams in the NHL since Fitzgerald took over for Ray Shero on an interim basis in January 2020. Fitzgerald got the full-time GM job that summer and oversaw the draft selections of Luke Hughes, Dawson Mercer and Simon Nemec, among others.
