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.
