Gordie Dwyer has been given a vote of confidence by the Charlottetown Islanders.

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League club announced Friday it had extended the Dalhousie, N.B., native’s contract by two years through 2015-16 season.

“It shows a commitment to (Gordie) and his family,” general manager Grant Sonier said.

“Over and above being a good hockey coach here with the Islanders, he’s gone out of his way to entrench himself in the community. . .  He’s very popular in the city and on the Island.”

The announcement was made Friday during the club’s barbeque.

Dwyer, 35, has a 60-66-0-10 record in two seasons with the Rocket. He coached the Summerside Western Capitals in the Maritime Junior Hockey League prior to coming to Charlottetown. He had an 80-42-2-5 record in Summerside.
