Vigneault Signs an Extension

05/22/2008 at 2:20pm EDT

From the Vancouver Canucks:

Vancouver Canucks General Manager Mike Gillis today announced that Head Coach Alain Vigneault has agreed to terms on an extension that keeps him under contract through the 2009-10 season.

“This is a significant announcement for our hockey club,” said Gillis. “My first priority when taking over the job was to meet with Alain and ensure we shared the same philosophy about building an elite level team for now and for the future. Alain has done a very good job in his two years in Vancouver and I am confident that will continue.”

Not too surprising given the fact Viggy had the authority to sack two of his own assistants last night. I’m really going to have to spend some time making fun of this situation later.
