The Anaheim Ducks have signed coach Bruce Boudreau to a two-year contract extension through 2014-15.
Anaheim rewarded Boudreau on Thursday for reviving the struggling Ducks after taking charge Nov. 30.
The Ducks went 27-23-8 after Boudreau replaced the fired Randy Carlyle, compiling one of the NHL's best records after the All-Star break.
Two days before he took over in Anaheim, Boudreau was fired by the Washington Capitals, who won the 2010 Presidents' Trophy during his four seasons in charge.
Boudreau won the 2008 Jack Adams Award as the NHL's top coach. He is 228-111-48 in his NHL coaching career with Anaheim and Washington, winning 200 games faster than any coach in modern league history.
