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.

Will the Chicago Blackhawks Come Through as Stanley Cup Favorites in 2014-15?

Sep 9 2014 10:25pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Heavy is the head that wears the crown. The Los Angeles Kings have to look out, because everyone in the NHL is going to be gunning for them this year. No team may have the Kings more in their sights than the Chicago Blackhawks. While the revenge factor exists, since the Kings knocked the Blackhawks out of the postseason in overtime of the seventh game of the Western Conference Final last spring, the Blackhawks are far more motivated by the idea of ...

What Are the Chicago Blackhawks' Options If Brad Richards Does Not Work Out?

Sep 2 2014 9:06pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Chicago Blackhawks are not looking for miracles from Brad Richards in 2014-15. When they signed the former New York Rangers center at the start of free agency, Stan Bowman and Joel Quenneville did not assume that they had brought in an all-star to play between Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad on the Blackhawks' No. 2 line. Instead, they projected that the aging Richards, 34, would have at least one decent season left in which he could show off his offensive ...
