Jets sign GM Cheveldayoff to three-year extension as team heads into busy off-season



Kevin Cheveldayoff has been given three more years to get the Winnipeg Jets back on a successful flight path.


The general manager confirmed his extension in a Monday press conference between exit meetings with players after the Jets missed the playoffs with a 39-32-11 record.


Cheveldayoff, 52, has been the team's only GM since the Atlanta Thrashers relocated to Winnipeg in 2011.


The GM has a lot on his to-do list, starting with a coaching decision.


Dave Lowry was named interim head coach after Paul Maurice resigned on Dec. 17, 2021.


Cheveldayoff said Lowry will be welcome to interview for the full-time position as the Jets conduct a search for Maurice's permanent replacement.
