Senators sign Neil to three-year extension
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- The Ottawa Senators have signed veteran forward Chris Neil to a three-year contract extension. The 33-year-old, who selected 161st overall by Ottaw in the 1998 NHL Draft, has spent his entire 10-season career with the Senators, recording 90 goals and 110 assists along with a franchise-leading 1,861 penalty minutes.
A Flesherton, Ontario, native, Neil had 13 goals and 15 assists in 72 games last season. He became just the fourth Ottawa player to appear in 700 games, reaching the mark on Jan. 21 in Anaheim.
