 PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia Flyers signed coach John Stevens to a two-year contract extension on Thursday that will keep him with the team through the 2010-11 season.
The 42-year-old Stevens led the Flyers to a remarkable turnaround that included an appearance in the Eastern Conference finals in his first full season as coach.
``We knew it was just a matter of time before we got it done,'' Stevens said. ``I love being part of this organization and the direction that the team is heading.''
The Flyers posted a 42-29-11 record last season - a 20-win improvement over the 2006-07 season, in which they finished with the league's worst record. Philadelphia lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference finals.
``John is very deserving of this new contract,'' general manager Paul Holmgren said. ``He is a very energetic coach who brings a lot of enthusiasm and passion to the game, and we look forward to working together over the next few years.''
Stevens has a career record of 63-71-22 since being promoted from assistant coach in October 2006.
