Report- A Contract Extension For Alain Vigneault

01/31/2017 at 7:07am EST

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

You know that five-year contract Alain Vigneault signed to coach the Rangers in July of 2013 meant to keep him on the job through the end of next season?

Well, not any longer … or to be more precise, it is now for longer than that, with The Post learning exclusively that the Blueshirts have extended Vigneault’s contract by two years through 2019-20 with a bump on the coach’s annual $2 million income.

So no prospective lame duck behind the New York bench at the Garden on Tuesday, when the Blueshirts face the Blue Jackets and John Tortorella, Vigneault’s predecessor on Broadway. And no offseason questions about the club’s direction behind the bench.
