ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray signed a four-year contract extension with the team Monday that keeps him with the organization through 2020.

Murray said the negotiations with Anaheim Chief Executive Officer Michael Schulman and owners Henry and Susan Samueli began around the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Despite Anaheim's elimination by the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Second Round, the organization has trended upward with its prospects and positioned itself well in the salary cap era since it won the Stanley Cup in 2007.

"The one major thought, first of all, [is that] my wife and family like it here and we love the ownership," Murray said. "And we've spent time since the last Cup rebuilding this, basically. So you want to see it through. That had a lot to staying here and going forward that way. I want to see this through and see where we can take this."

The team announced Monday that it resigned goalie Brian Elliott to a three-year, $7.5 million extension and will team Elliott with incumbent Jake Allen for the 2014-15 season, meaning Miller will become an unrestricted free agent in July.
