The Washington Capitals gave head coach Bruce Boudreau a contract on Wednesday, rewarded him for leading the team from last in the league to a Southeast Division title.

"He's our coach. He's under contract .. for a long time," said Capitals general manager George McPhee, who would not elaborate on the details saying it's his policy not to discuss details of coaches' contracts.

Boudreau, a career minor league coach, was promoted from the AHL's Hershey Bears to replace the fired Glen Hanlon in late November, when the Capitals were a league-worst 6-14-1. They went 37-17-7 under Boudreau to make the playoffs for the first time since 2003.

The Capitals lost to Philadelphia 3-2 in overtime in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal Tuesday night.
