Bruce Cassidy, who coached the Boston Bruins to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final last season, signed a multiyear contract extension Wednesday.

The Bruins did not release terms of the extension.

Cassidy ultimately replaced Julien on February 7, 2017, the Bruins poking along with a lackluster 26-23-6 record.

In two-plus seasons with the team, Cassidy has a 117-52-22 record with three straight postseason appearances.

Boston finished second in the Atlantic Division last season and came within one win of the Stanley Cup, ultimately falling to the St. Louis Blues in seven games.

Cassidy has enjoyed enormous success since taking over on an interim basis in 2017-18, guiding the Bruins to three consecutive playoff appearances. The Bruins finished second to the Lightning in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference, had the fourth-best record in the National Hockey League, and eliminated the Maple Leafs in the Eastern Conference First Round before losing to Tampa Bay in the second round. Reinvigorated under the more offensive-minded Cassidy, the Bruins staged an 18-8-1 surge and qualified for the playoffs, bowing out in six games to the Senators. In the fall of 2011, he began a five-year tour as the WannaB's head coach, then joined Julien's staff here as an assistant in the fall of 2016, ultimately replacing Julien on February 7, 2017 and the Bruins poking along with a lackluster 26-23-6 record. He also served as head coach of the Washington Capitals from 2002 to 2003, posting a 47-47-9 record.
