OTTAWA -- Ottawa Senators coach Jacques Martin received a multiyear contract extension Monday.

Martin is in his eighth full season, and has the longest current tenure with one team among NHL coaches.

The Senators (27-12-7-3) are among the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Last season, Ottawa lost to the New Jersey Devils in Game 7 of the conference final.

Martin's record with Ottawa is 325-241-93, with one conference regular-season title and three Northeast Division titles.
