Coach Bylsma signs two-year extension

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed head coach Dan Bylsma to a two-year contract extension

Bylsma, 42, had one-year left on his current contract with the Penguins.

"I believe in Dan Bylsma and I believe in stability with our coaching staff," Penguins GM Ray Shero said. "Dan is one of the top coaches in the NHL. His record speaks for itself. We fell short of our goal this year, and we’re all disappointed in that, but I believe -- and our ownership believes -- that Dan is the man to lead us into the future."

Bylsma became the fastest coach in NHL history to win 200 games when the Penguins defeated Ottawa, 3-1, on April 22. It was just his 316th career game. He has the best winning percentage of any coach in Penguins history (.699) with an all-time record of 201-93-25 in five seasons.

Bylsma also is the winningest coach in Penguins playoff history with 36 post-season victories and seven playoff series victories, including the 2009 Stanley Cup.

He received the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's most outstanding coach in 2011.
