Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin's contract will expire when the season ends after he and the team were unable to come to terms on an extension.

A team spokesperson told Sportsnet's Eric Engels that the team will honour Bergevin's contract and his future status with the club will be determined after the season.

Bergevin has been general manager of the Canadiens since May of 2012. Montreal has gone a combined 338-250-79 with six playoff appearances during his tenure.

In his time as GM, Bergevin has made some significant trades involving fan favourite players such as P.K. Subban and Max Pacioretty while also bringing in important contributors such as Josh Anderson and Jake Allen.

Bergevin signed his current contract in 2015.
