ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed head coach Randy Carlyle to a new three-year contract through the 2013-14 NHL season. Carlyle was originally under contract through 2011-12. That contract year (2011-12) has been revised as part of the new three-year agreement. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.
“Randy has been invaluable to this club over the last six years,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “He has been a true leader through thick and thin, and we are very pleased to be able to reward him with this well-deserved contract.”
Carlyle, 55 (4/19/56), was named the seventh head coach in team history on Aug. 1, 2005 and has since led the Ducks to their first Stanley Cup championship (2007), Pacific Division championship (2007) and five playoff appearances in six seasons (2005-09, 2011). Only one NHL coach has won more postseason games than Carlyle’s 36 since 2005-06 (Mike Babcock). Carlyle has the most wins and highest winning percentage in Ducks history, compiling a 266-169-57 record in 492 regular season contests (.599 winning percentage).
“I’m very grateful to be able to continue coaching the Ducks into the future,” said Carlyle. “The Samuelis have laid a great foundation for success in Southern California both on and off the ice, and my family and I are happy to be a part of it.”
