Peter Laviolette Receives A Contract Extension From The Flyers

from the Flyers’ website,

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they agreed to terms with head coach Peter Laviolette on a multi-year contract extension, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.

“We are thrilled to have Peter continue his work with our group as we push to compete for the Stanley Cup,” Holmgren said.  “Peter has done a terrific job for us and is very deserving of this extension.”

Laviolette was named the 17th head coach in Flyers history on December 4, 2009.  Since joining the club, he has had one of the most successful runs of any Flyers head coach in the last 25 years.
