Turris Signs Five-Year Extension With Senators

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today that the club has signed centre Kyle Turris to a five-year contract extension through the 2017-18 NHL season.

Turris, 23, recently completed his third full season in the National Hockey League and played 49 of his 55 regular season contests in 2011-12 as a member of the Senators. He was originally acquired by Ottawa from the Phoenix Coyotes on Dec. 17, 2011, in exchange for defenceman David Rundblad and a second-round draft pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

General sentiment around Ottawa seems to be that $3.5 million/year for Turris is a pretty great deal.

Though the team is paying for potential somewhat, that amount isn’t likely to become too much of an albatross. Most around here seem to feel that he can be a strong #2 centre, and I’ve been hearing good things about the work he has done this off-season.
