Jets extend GM's contract

The SportsXchange

General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff agreed to terms on a contract extension with the Winnipeg Jets, the team announced Wednesday.

Terms of the extension were not disclosed. Cheveldayoff is in his third season with the Jets, who relocated to Winnipeg from Atlanta when Cheveldayoff took the job.

In Cheveldayoff's first two seasons as GM, the Jets have a 61-56-13 record but missed the Stanley Cup playoffs both years. The last time the franchise made the postseason was in 2007 as the Thrashers.

Cheveldayoff, 43, has overseen an offseason spending spree in an attempt to solidify the roster that includes Zach Bogosian, Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler.

Before coming to Winnipeg, Cheveldayoff served as an assistant GM with the Chicago Blackhawks.
