The Boston Bruins signed general manager Don Sweeney to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced Monday.

Sweeney's previous deal was set to expire at the end of June.

"Under (Sweeney's) management, the Boston Bruins have been one of the winningest franchises in the league and a perennial playoff contender year in and year out," said Bruins CEO Charlie Jacobs. "While we recognize there is work to be done to achieve the ultimate goal of bringing the Stanley Cup back to Boston, I'm confident that Don's commitment to being best-in-class on and off the ice will help us climb that mountain once again."

Sweeney was promoted to GM prior to the 2015-16 season. He won the NHL's GM of the Year in 2018-19 as Boston reached the Stanley Cup Final, losing in seven games to the St. Louis Blues.

The 55-year-old has been in the club's front office since 2006, serving in various capacities. Sweeney also played 15 years with the Bruins from 1988 to 2003.
