Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois has agreed to a contract extension with the NHL club, according to Eduardo Encina of the Tampa Bay Times.

Encina reports BriseBois was entering the final season of his current deal. Terms of the contract were not immediately known.

BriseBois' Bolts have won the Stanley Cup the past two years.

The 44-year-old native of Greenfield Park, Que., was promoted to GM from assistant GM in 2018.

BriseBois was GM of the Hamilton Bulldogs, then Montreal's AHL affiliate, when they won the Calder Cup in 2007.
