Philadelphia coach Ken Hitchcock signed a new three-year contract with the Flyers through 2008-09.
Hitchcock, entering his fourth season, is 130-77-39 in the regular season with Philadelphia. He led the Flyers to the conference finals in 2004, where they lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning, who later won the Stanley Cup.
Hitchcock said negotiations with general manager Bob Clarke lasted “only about 30 seconds.”
