The Montreal Canadiens owner, president and CEO Geoff Molson has announced that general manager, Marc Bergevin, has signed a multi-year contract extension that will keep him with the organization until the end of the 2021-22 season.
“This new agreement brings added stability for our organization and particularly for our hockey operations,” Molson said. “It enables us to continue our efforts in giving our fans a winning team.
“Marc is an excellent general manager who quickly made an impact in the league with his leadership skills and his ability to identify the needs and find the personnel to assemble a championship team. I am very pleased with his work and the results he has achieved since his appointment as general manager.”
Marc Bergevin has been with the Canadiens since May 2012 and under his direction the club has gone from a bottom-three team to a playoff contender. The Canadiens currently sit in a three-way tie atop the NHL standings, and are in a dead heat with the Rangers with a league-high plus-28 goal differential.
Next season would have been Bergevin’s last under his original contract.
