The Winnipeg Jets handed general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff a three-year extension, he confirmed Monday, to begin what’s expected to be a busy offseason.

The deal keeps the 52-year-old in Winnipeg through the 2025 season.

Cheveldayoff took over the front office in the summer of 2011 when the team relocated from Atlanta.

The Jets have had a degree of success under him, reaching the playoffs in four straight seasons before falling short this year. They advanced to the Western Conference Final in 2018, losing to the Vegas Golden Knights in five games. Cheveldayoff was a finalist for the General Manager of the Year Award that season.

Winnipeg enters an offseason of transition. In addition to Pierre-Luc Dubois becoming a restricted free agent and Paul Stastny becoming an unrestricted free agent, star forward Mark Scheifele said Sunday that he’ll need to meet with the front office to decide if he sees his future with the organization.
