Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - The Winnipeg Jets and head coach Claude Noel
agreed to a one-year contract extension on Monday.
Noel, who was heading into the final season of his current contract, led the
Jets to a 24-21-3 record and second-place finish in the Southeast
Division last season, his second at the helm. He's racked up a 61-57-13 mark
in Winnipeg, but has yet to lead the club to a postseason berth.
The 57-year-old Ontario native previously served as interim head coach in
Columbus during the 2009-10 season, then spent the following year as head
coach with the Manitoba Moose in the American Hockey League.
