WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets have given head coach Claude Noel at least a small vote of confidence, signing him to a one-year contract extension. Justin Turner Dodgers Jersey . General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff says the rest of the coaching staff will also be offered some job security as well. "You deal with whats right in front of you and the coaching staff now has got an extension to move forward beyond this season and thats something that we all feel comfortable with," Cheveldayoff said Monday. Noel is entering his third season with the team and the one-year extension will take him to the end of the 2014-15 NHL season. Cheveldayoff and Noel said the fact that it was only a one-year extension wasnt that big a deal. "The term really doesnt determine how you do that job. For me the extension is great," said Noel. "Would you rather have a longer term? I think this is fine." Noel led the Jets to a 24-21-3 record last season as Winnipeg finished ninth in the Eastern Conference, four points behind the New York Islanders for the final playoff spot. He coached the Jets to a 37-35-10 record in 2011-12, the clubs first season in Winnipeg after relocating from Atlanta, also missing the playoffs. The former Thrashers havent seen the playoffs since the 2006-07 season, when they were swept in the quarter-finals by the New York Rangers. "I clearly see that we have to make the playoffs but its not easy to make the playoffs," the coach said Monday on a conference call. Prior to the Jets arrival, Noel coached the American Hockey Leagues Manitoba Moose to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs in 2010-11. Before moving to Winnipeg, he spent four seasons in Columbus as an assistant coach and was head coach for the final 24 games of the 2009-10 season after Ken Hitchcock was fired. The Blue Jackets went 10-8-6 over that span but Noels contract was not renewed. Cheveldayoff also talked about the upcoming NHL draft and his dealings with both restricted and unrestricted free agents. He says the team would like to move up from their current 13th pick in the entry draft but there are also teams lower down that would like to move up as well. There is the potential for deals either way. He has started talks with all the teams restricted free agents and is looking to get them signed. As for unrestricted free agents, they have had some discussions with defenceman Grant Clitsome and goaltender Al Montoya about returning. As for the others, such as defenceman Ron Hainsey, Cheveldayoff said he expects they may try the market but he didnt rule out some returning. He still wants to add depth at forward but with the 13th pick, says its difficult to know who might be available. They will take the best player they can get. Centre Mark Scheifele, their top 2011 draft pick, is expected to join the team this season after playing the last two seasons with his junior squad in Barrie. With so many players able to move, exactly what Noel will have to work with this season is up in the air. "Were not quire sure where our roster is right now but that will be determined through time." He says they still have to work on being more consistent and improving their goals for and against average, but he sees lots of room for growth. "I like our team. I like our players. I like a lot of what they bring to the table," he said. Next season the Jets also move to the Western Conference. "It will be a fun time for us and a big challenge," said Noel. Shawn Green Jersey . The 36-year-old Colts receiver is going back to the playoffs as a division champion. Dodgers Jerseys 2020 . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. https://www.cheapdodgersonline.com/ . The Flames announced Monday that Treliving, a former assistant general manager with the Coyotes, will take over the vacant GM spot in Calgary. "Im ready for this,"Treliving said.UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New York Islanders traded veteran defenceman Andrew MacDonald to the Metropolitan Division rival Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday for a pair of draft picks and minor league centre Matt Mangene. The deal was announced one day before the NHL trade deadline and several hours before the Islanders played the Jets in Winnipeg. Philadelphia will host Washington on Wednesday night, following the afternoon dealing deadline. MacDonald will bolster the Flyers defence corps as they push for a playoff spot. Philadelphia, which also has former Islanders defenceman Mark Streit on the back end, is currently in second place in the Metropolitan, one point ahead of the New York Rangers and two points above the post-season cutoff. Streit, who spent time as MacDonalds defence partner with New York, was traded to the Flyers last June after serving as Islanders team captain. He then signed a four-year, $21 million contract less than a week after the deal, before he could become a free agent. New York is in a selling mode now, all but certain to fail in its bid to make the playoffs for a second consecutive season. The Islanders, who are last in the division, acquired a third-round piick in this years draft and a second-round choice in 2015, along with Mangene. Steve Howe Jersey. The Islanders had arguably the top available defenceman and forward in this years trade market. Leading scorer Thomas Vanek, acquired earlier this season from Buffalo, also is expected to be dealt before Wednesdays deadline. The 27-year-old MacDonald, who can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, has four goals and 20 assists in 63 games this season. He leads the NHL with 198 blocked shots and is eighth in average ice time per game at 25 minutes, 25 seconds. In 295 career NHL games over six seasons, all with the Islanders, MacDonald has 17 goals and 72 assists. He was chosen by New York in the sixth round of the 2006 draft. Mangene, who will turn 25 on March 12, has three goals and three assists in 51 games this season with Adirondack of the American Hockey League. He was assigned to Bridgeport. Mangene played three seasons of college hockey at Maine, and had 16 goals and 34 points in his final season of 2011-12. He signed an entry-level contract with the Flyers in 2012 before being sent to Adirondack. In 92 career games with Adirondack, Mangene had 14 goals and 15 assists. ' ' '
