Coach Paul Maurice and general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff each had his contract extended by the Winnipeg Jets, TSN reported Wednesday.

They were scheduled to expire following this season, according to the report. Terms of the extension were not disclosed.

Maurice, 50, replaced Claude Noel on Jan. 12, 2014, and went 43-26-13 in his first full season (2014-15) to help the Jets make their only Stanley Cup Playoff appearance since they relocated from Atlanta in 2011. He's 136-112-33 as Jets coach, and 596-569-101 with 99 ties in 20 NHL seasons with the Hartford Whalers, Carolina Hurricanes, Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg.

Maurice coached the Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup Final in 2002, losing to the Detroit Red Wings in five games.

Cheveldayoff, 47, has been Jets GM since 2011. Winnipeg is 216-191-51 since he was hired.

The Jets finished 40-35-7 last season, seven points behind the Nashville Predators for the second wild card into the playoffs from the Western Conference.
