The Dallas Stars announced on Monday afternoon that they've signed General Manager Jim Nill to a two-year contract extension that'll see him remain in the Lone Star State until after the 2025-26 season.

"My family and I are grateful to Tom Gaglardi for his commitment to the organization and giving me every resource available to build this team," Nill said. "I'm fortunate to have an incredible team of individuals alongside me that have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to help build our team into what it is today. I'm excited to continue my work in developing a winning culture and reaching our shared goal of winning the Stanley Cup."

Nill, 65, has been with the Dallas Stars for the past 11 seasons as their General Manager and earlier this summer was named this year's recipient of the Jim Gregory General Manager of the the Year Award.

During his playing career in the National Hockey League, Nill suited up for parts of three seasons with the Vancouver Canucks from 1981-82 to the 1983-84 campaign. In 124 games with the Canucks, Nill had 40 points (17 goals, 23 assists), 219 penalty minutes and was a minus-25. In his first season with Vancouver, Nill put up seven points in 16 playoff games as the Canucks reached their first-ever Stanley Cup Final.
