Canadiens sign general manager Bergevin to extension through 2021-22 season

MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens have signed general manager and executive vice president Marc Bergevin to a multi-year contract extension through the end of the 2021-22 season.

The Canadiens have made the playoffs in three straight seasons under Bergevin's watch, including an appearance in the Eastern Conference final in 2013-14.

Bergevin took over as Montreal's vacant general manager position on May 2, 2012, and the Canadiens have posted a 141-68-25 record since.

Bergevin quickly turned a franchise that finished with just 78 points in 2011-12 under Pierre Gauthier, who was fired near the end of the season.
