Paul Holmgren earns 3-year contract extension|PHI|home

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that general manager Paul Holmgren has signed a three-year contract extension.

“I’m particularly proud of the job Paul Holmgren has done with our hockey club and excited to offer him this three-year extension,” said Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider. “He continuously finds the right opportunities to improve our team and get us closer to our ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup.”

“Paul has done and continues to do a fabulous job in putting together a very competitive team on the ice for us,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “We felt based on many of Paul’s recent successes, including last season’s run through the Final and the tenacity of our team this season, that this was the right time to offer him a contract extension. This sends a message to our fans, players and coaches that we are committed to winning and our organization will be stable for years to come."
Per Delco Times:
The Daily Times has learned through an organizational source that the Flyers are going to announce a three-year extension for their general manager Thursday, worth approximately $4.5 million.

That's what an Eastern Conference championship, another Conference finals appearance and the best record in the East through the first half of this season has gotten Holmgren.

The Flyers' brass would not comment on the possible extension and Holmgren himself could not be reached Monday night.
