Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

WIN­NIPEG — The Win­nipeg Jets have signed head coach Paul Mau­rice and gen­eral man­ager Kevin Cheveldayo­ff to multi-year con­tract ex­ten­sions.

Mau­rice was en­ter­ing the last year of his con­tract.

The 50-year-old has been with the club since Jan­uary 2014, post­ing a 136-112-33 record. Cheveldayo­ff has been guid­ing the Jets al­most from the very start of the club’s re­turn to Win­nipeg. He was hired on June 8, 2011, eight days af­ter the fran­chise re­lo­cated from At­lanta.

The Jets have been to the post­sea­son only once since then. They were swept in the first round of the 2015 play­offs by Anaheim.
