Raleigh, NC, United States (NewsBahn) - Carolina Hurricanes coach Bill Peters' inked a two-year contract extension with the team Wednesday, likely keeping him behind the bench through at least the 2018-19 season.

The Canes enjoyed a 15 point boost from the previous season but missed the playoffs for a seventh straight season.

Peters still likes the positive direction the team seems to be headed in, however.

"We knew it wasn't going to be a quick turnaround," Peters added. "Obviously it takes time...but we're realistic. We've accumulated lots of assets. I just like the direction we're headed in and we're headed in that direction for a long period of time."

Peters is the right coach for the team moving forward, according to Canes GM Ron Francis.

"If you're constantly changing over guys, in a lot of ways you go back to square one - the system is a different structure, the players have to retrain themselves," Francis said. "I don't think there's any reason, if you have a good coach, that he can't be with the organization a long time, and that's what we have in Bill."
