TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman to a four-year contract extension that runs through the 2018-19 season.
Yzerman is completing his fourth season in Tampa Bay. The Lightning are playoff-bound for the second time during his tenure.
The extension was announced Monday by team chairman and governor Jeff Vinik.
The 48-year-old Yzerman won three Stanley Cup championships as a player and one as an executive in 27 seasons with the Detroit Red Wings. The Hall of Famer says he's ''grateful for the opportunity'' to continue leading the Lightning.
The Lightning also announced Steve Griggs has been promoted from chief operating officer to team president.
