Don Waddell is staying in Carolina.
It was announced Monday that the Hurricanes' president and general manager has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with the club. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Don's leadership and experience are invaluable to our organization and I'm happy we were able reach an extension," said Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon in a team release. "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."
Waddell's future with Carolina had been up in the air. He was seeking a new contract this summer and had recently interviewed for the vacant general manager positionwith the Minnesota Wild, which could have given him some leverage in his contract negotiations with the Hurricanes.
Ultimately, he'll stay in Raleigh where he has found success since being named interim general manager in March of 2018.
