Neil Agrees To Extension In Ottawa

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Chris Neil has signed a three-year contract extension with the Senators, the Sun has learned.

It’s believed the deal is worth $5.75 million and will see the team’s career penalty minutes leader make $2 million in 2013-14, $2 million in 2014-15 and $1.75 million in 2015-16.

Neil, who will earn $2 million in 2012-13 as part of his current agreement, could have become an unrestricted free agent next July 1. Instead, on that day, the right winger will get a $200,000 bonus as up-front money on the next season’s salary.

Heck of a deal for the Sens. Watching him play for a couple years with the Griffins made me a big fan. Always wished the Wings could somehow get him…
