Ducks sign GM Bob Murray to a 2-year contract extension

The Ducks have signed General Manager Bob Murray a two-year contract extension, keeping him on the job through the 2021-22 season, the team announced Saturday.

He has been with the Ducks since 2005 and has served as their GM for 11 years.

Murray was the NHL’s general manager of the year in 2013-14 and has been a finalist three times for the award. He has guided the Ducks to six consecutive Stanley Cup playoff berths and Pacific Division titles in five of the past six seasons.

“Bob has created a winning organization with his commitment and expertise,” Ducks chief executive officer Michael Schulman said in a statement. “We are very pleased to be in a position where expectations are high virtually every season, thanks in large part of Bob and his staff. We passionately share a common goal, bringing another Stanley Cup to Orange County.”

Murray is the longest-serving GM in Ducks history, with 787 games on the job.

“It’s an honor to work for a great organization, led by terrific ownership,” Murray said. “Having a successful franchise is a group effort, and I’m grateful for the efforts of many, including my entire hockey operations staff.”
