The Arizona Coyotes have reached an agreement with general manager John Chayka on a long-term contract extension, according to an official team announcement.
Coyotes’ team owner Alex Meruelo issued the following:
“We are extremely pleased to sign John to a long-term contract extension. John is one of the brightest and hardest-working general managers in the entire NHL and over the past four seasons, he has done an excellent job of rebuilding our franchise and transforming the Coyotes into a contender. I am fully confident that John is the right person to lead us moving forward and help us bring the Stanley Cup to Arizona.”
Chayka, 30, became the youngest general manager in NHL history when he was officially hired back in 2016.
