CALGARY - The WHL has extended commissioner Ron Robison's contract through the 2010-11 season.

The decision was made at the league's board of governors meeting earlier this week. "I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue to play a leading role in the continued growth and development of the WHL," Robison, currently in his eighth season in the position, said in a statement Wednesday.

The board also approved the schedule format for the 2008-09 season and discussed the economic sustainability of WHL franchises during Tuesday's meeting.
