Ottawa Senators General Manager Pierre Dorion is getting a contract extension. 

He will continue to oversee the club's roster through its 2024-25 season, with a club option in 2025-26.
 
"Dating to when he was named GM in 2016, Pierre has worked tirelessly towards building an organization that can compete with the National Hockey League's best," says Senators Owner Eugene Melnyk. "He's dedicated, detailed and maintains a sound hockey mind. Under Pierre's leadership, we have the utmost confidence that this team will soon be recognized as one that is consistently meriting success."

An Ottawa native, Dorion was originally hired by the Senators in July of 2007 as the team's chief amateur scout. He has also served as its director of player personnel and as assistant general manager.

The Senators' next victory will represent the 150th of Dorion's general managerial career. His 149 victories with the Senators see him rank third in team history behind Bryan Murray (339) and John Muckler (240).
