The Chicago Blackhawks rewarded Stan Bowman for his role in assembling a two-time Stanley Cup championship team Wednesday giving their general manager a two-year contract extension that will run through the 2017-18 NHL season.

“Stan has been an integral part of our organizational success and we are proud to reward him with a well-deserved extension” Blackhawks President and CEO John McDonough said in a statement. “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.”

At age 40 the youngest GM in the NHL Bowman is in his 13th season with the Hawks and his fourth in his current position. In June Bowman became the first GM to win multiple Stanley Cup titles since the NHL instituted a salary capo in 2005.
