The Nashville Predators have signed head coach John Hynes to a two-year extension, general manager David Poile announced Thursday.

Hynes' current contract, which included a one-year team option, was set to expire.

The Preds hired the 47-year-old bench boss midway through the 2019-20 campaign, taking over for Peter Laviolette. Nashville has qualified for the postseason in each campaign under Hynes, although the club has been unable to get out of the opening round.

Overall, the Predators are 92-64-10 in parts of three seasons under Hynes. He coached the New Jersey Devils for parts of five years before arriving in The Music City.
