Vigneault Inks Three-Year Extension

From this morning:

Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that Head Coach Alain Vigneault has agreed to terms on a new contract that extends through the 2012.2013 season.

"This is a significant announcement for our hockey club," said Mike Gillis. "Alain and his staff have done an excellent job leading our team to two Division titles in three years. I believe strongly in the partnership between management, coaches and players and we are all committed to building a championship team here in Vancouver."

"This is an exciting day for me and my coaching staff," said Alain Vigneault. "Having the opportunity to work with the Aquilini family, Mike and his staff and our players has been very rewarding. I love working and coaching in this tremendous hockey city and look forward to continuing to build on our previous success."

I don't know what pictures of Gills Vigneault is holding on to, but congrats for three more years of relative job security. Maybe there's an out clause for management if the trap is used more than five times in a given season?

I kid. Sort of.
