OTTAWA (AP) - Paul MacLean, the NHL's coach of the year, has signed a three-year extension with the Ottawa Senators.

MacLean won the Jack Adams Award this past season as the league's top coach after leading the injury-riddled Senators to a 25-17-6 record after the NHL lockout.

Financial terms of the contract weren't disclosed, but Senators general manager Bryan Murray said the sides felt they were able to come to an agreement on what was fair.

``I thought the commitment that we made to go three more years is really a confidence thing,'' MacLean said Thursday. ``At the same time, I was prepared to just do my job, but this is what I wanted and we're really excited about it.''

Ottawa reached the playoffs despite missing star forward Jason Spezza and Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson for most of the season.

The Senators eliminated the favored Montreal Canadiens in five games in the first round of the postseason before losing to Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

In two years with the Senators, MacLean is 66-48-16 in 130 regular-season games.

Before joining Ottawa, MacLean spent six seasons as an assistant coach to Mike Babcock with the Detroit Red Wings.

MacLean said he is already looking forward to next season.

``We're going to work to get better again,'' MacLean said. ``We're going to work every day to get better, and if we do that we're going to like where we are at the end.''
