Over the last couple of days Carolina Hurricanes GM Don Waddell has been in the news for some interesting reasons. 

The Hurricanes GM has been working without a contract and that news came out after he interviewed with the Minnesota Wild. 

The Wild have a vacant GM position and Waddell was being mentioned as a top candidate while the Hurricanes financial status was in question again as their GM had no contract. 

Well that's been resolved as the Hurricanes made an announcement on Monday regarding Waddell's future. 

The team has signed Waddell to a multi year contract extension. 

From the press release:

"Don's leadership and experience are invaluable to our organization and I'm happy we were able reach an extension," said Dundon. "Don and I have a great relationship and he is someone I trust. I'm excited to continue to build a championship team with Don."

"I'm thrilled to sign an extension with the Hurricanes and I look forward to continuing the success we experienced last season," said Waddell. "We have a first-class organization, a great fanbase and a team we feel is built to contend for the Stanley Cup. My family and I are excited to stay in Raleigh for years to come."
