WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets and general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff have agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension.

Cheveldayoff was named to the position in June 2011 as the Jets relocated to Winnipeg from Atlanta.

In his two seasons with the team, the Jets have an overall record of 61-56-13 but missed the playoffs both years.

Cheveldayoff spent two seasons as assistant general manager of the Chicago Blackhawks before joining the Jets.

He also spent 12 seasons as general manager of the Chicago Wolves, guiding the American Hockey League club to four league championships during his tenure.
