Ducks extend GM Murray through 2020

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Anaheim Ducks and general manager Bob Murray agreed to a four-year contract extension on Monday.

Murray, 59, is now signed through the 2019-20 season.

"We're very pleased to extend Bob's contract," said Ducks chief executive officer Michael Schulman. "Since taking over as general manager, he has meticulously added youth, skill and depth to the organization. Having been in the NHL for the last 39 consecutive years, he has outstanding knowledge and expertise for the job. He's the right man to continue leading the hockey club going forward."

Murray became the Ducks' GM in November of 2008 after serving as the club's senior vice president of hockey operations for three-plus seasons.

"This is the right place for me and my family, and I'm very grateful to have the opportunity," Murray said.

The Ducks finished the 2013-14 regular season atop the Western Conference at 54-20-8, the best record in club history, and even though they lost in a Game 7 to the Los Angeles Kings in the second round, the club's future is bright.

Anaheim boasts plenty of talent in the pipeline thanks to Murray's astute drafting and was ranked No. 1 in The Hockey News' Future Watch 2014, a publication which grades the prospects and player development of all 30 NHL teams.
