Lightning coach Cooper has multiyear extension
His contract was due to expire at the end of this season. It is unclear how long the extension runs for. The 51-year-old Cooper was originally named Tampa Bay's coach in 2013 and is currently the NHL's longest-tenured coach. He is the franchise's all-time leader for wins with 301.
Tampa Bay currently has a goal differential of plus-100, which would mark the NHL's highest since the 2005-06
