Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice signed to 4-year contract
Goalie Ondrej Pavelec to keep his place between the pipes, says Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff
Jets coach Paul Maurice has been signed to a four year contract extension.
General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff made the announcement Wednesday morning.
Maurice joined the team in January as a temp after former Jets coach Claude Noel was fired following a five-game losing streak.
Cheveldayoff also said Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec will keep his place as a starter between the pipes.
Pavelec ended the 2013-2014 season with a 3.01 goals-against average and 0.901 save percentage.
The Jets finished shy of the playoffs for the third-straight year with 84 points and a record of 37-35-10.
Winnipeg was 18-12-5 overall under Maurice.
