Mod edit:

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Thursday he expects to have a contract extension completed with coach Peter Laviolette in about a week. Laviolette's current deal runs through the end of the 2012-13 season.

Laviolette has led the Flyers to back-to-back 47-win seasons. In parts of three seasons in Philadelphia, he has a record of 122-73-26, and 23-22 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Flyers have won at least one playoff series in each of his three seasons.

He was hired by the Flyers on Dec. 4, 2009 with the team 11th in the Eastern Conference standings. They turned things around, and after a shootout win on the last day of the regular season, Laviolette led the Flyers to the 2010 Stanley Cup Final.

Laviolette extension coming within week

The Flyers are set to extend coach Peter Laviolette’s contract and expect a deal to be completed within a week, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Laviolette, 47, has led the Flyers to a 122-73-26 record since taking over the reins as coach in December 2009. His current contract would expire at the end of the 2012-13 season – but it appears the team won’t allow that to happen.
