The Stanley Cup champions Chicago Blackhawks gave general manager Stan Bowman a two-year extension on Wednesday.

The Stanley Cup champions Chicago Blackhawks gave general manager Stan Bowman a two-year extension on Wednesday. 

According to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune, the contract runs through the 2018-19 NHL season. The Blackhawks have winning two Stanley Cups in the last four seasons marks an exciting period for the franchise, which Bowman acknowledges after signing his new deal

"Hockey-wise, this is a very exciting time to be part of the Blackhawks organization. We had a tremendous season last year culminating with the ultimate victory. We had a lot of time this summer to enjoy that. 

"As John (McDonough) and I have talked and we've talked to the coaching staff, that was a great moment for our organization, but it's time to close that book and start a new one. That's sort of why we're here. This is the first chapter of the new book for the Blackhawks, and we're excited for what's to come." 

For his part, Blackhawks president John McDonough emphasized Bowman's value to the team and the impressive system he has implemented in helping build a perennial contender. 

"Stan has been an integral part of our organizational success and we are proud to reward him with a well-deserved extension. From the amateur levels to our team in Chicago, Stan has a great system in place as we all strive for consistent excellence throughout the organization." 

Bowman, 40, a graduate of Notre Dame and the son of legendary coach Scotty Bowman, is the youngest and only NHL general manager to win the Stanley Cup twice in the salary cap era, per the league's official website. 

He had a daunting challenge in 2010 with the salary cap but faced it head on by retaining the team's nucleus while surrounding them with role players. Such players include Bryan Bickell, Andrew Shaw, Ray Emery, Marcus Kruger and Michael Frolik. 

Bowman also made it a point to sign goaltender Corey Crawford and defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson to extensions over the summer. Aside from them, other Blackhawks who are signed for at least two more years include Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa and Brent Seabrook. 

Bowman has been with the organization for 13 years, replacing former GM Dale Tallon on July 14, 2009.

Oct 2 2014 7:25pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Jeremy Morin is not going to find himself in the headlines or the highlight films very often. But the young left wing made a statement at the end of the 2013-14 regular season, and it's one that made general manager Stan Bowman and head coach Joel Quenneville take notice. Morin played 24 games last year with the Blackhawks after he was brought up from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League. In the first 18 ...
