Evgenii Dadonov Signs In Ottawa

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the team has signed forward Evgenii Dadonov to a three-year contract. The contract holds an average annual value of $5M and will see Dadonov earn $3.5M in 2020-21, $5M in 2021-22 and $6.5M in 2022-23.

A three-time 25 goal-scorer with the Florida Panthers, Dadonov ranked fourth among Panthers with 47 points (25 goals, 22 assists) while skating in each of Florida's 69 regular-season games in 2019-20. His 25 markers last season saw him rank second among Panthers' goal scorers while his career-best 11 power-play tallies tied for the team lead. The 11 power-play goals also helped him tie an NHL career-high with 17 power-play points.

"We're thrilled to have come to an agreement with Evgenii," said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "He's an elite offensive talent and a very consistent scorer as demonstrated by his point totals over the last three seasons. This is a key signing for us as it adds a player who will help us produce offensively and one with a proven track record on the power-play."

Dadonov is a really good player. He will win some games for them. They added some toughness on D and some scoring up front. Good moves.
