The Ducks have announced that they have signed head coach Randy Carlyle to a 1-year extension that will keep him in Anaheim through the 2017-2018 season. Per club policy, the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Carlyle signed a 2-year deal in June of 2016 to return to the Ducks after having previously coached them from 2005-2012.

The Ducks exceeded many observers expectations with a deep playoff run this season, making it to Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals and earning the grizzled bench boss an extra year of job security (as much as one can have as a head coach in the NHL).

Carlyle is the most successful Ducks coach in franchise history with an overall record of 319-205-74 in 598 career games. He led the team to the Ducks only Stanley Cup win in 2007.

In addition to the Carlyle extension, the Ducks announced that assistants Trent Yawney and Rich Preston would return to the bench for next season. The club also announced that Todd Marchant would return to his role as Director of Player Development and Special Projects.

Assistant Coach Paul MacLean and the Ducks mutually parted ways yesterday with the expiration of his contract.
