The Chicago Blackhawks have signed general manager Stan Bowman to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.

Bowman became GM in 2009 and led the team to Stanley Cups in 2010 and 2013. His contract now runs through the 2017-18 season.

After the first of those titles, Bowman had to rebuild the supporting cast behind Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews because of salary cap concerns. The team took a step back but quickly became contenders again.
