Senators give MacLean 3-year extension
Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - The Ottawa Senators have rewarded Jack Adams Award-winning head coach Paul MacLean with a three-year contract extension.
"In two years, Paul has made a significant impact on the entire franchise, both on and off the ice," said Senators general manager Bryan Murray. "We feel that under Paul's direction we have been able to develop into a team that is competitive each and every night and we are confident that he is the person we want behind the bench to lead us to our goal of being a championship level team."
MacLean guided an injury-wracked club to a 25-17-6 record and a berth in the postseason in 2013, knocking off the rival Montreal Canadiens before falling to Pittsburgh in the second round.
