Three-Year Contract Extension For Mike Condon In Ottawa

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators (@Senators) general manager Pierre Dorion announced today that the club has signed goaltender Mike Condon to a three-year contract extension. The contract will carry an average annual value of $2.4 million ($1.7 M in year one, $2.5M in year two, $3M in year three).

Condon, 27, was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for the team's fifth-round draft pick in 2017 on Nov. 2, 2016. He went on to play in 40 games for the Senators in 2016-17, posting a 19-14-6 record with a 2.48 goals-against average, .914 save percentage and five shutouts.

His first season in Ottawa featured several team records, including playing in a franchise-best 27 consecutive games between Dec. 1, 2016, and Feb. 4, 2017. He became the fastest goaltender in franchise history to record five shutouts, when he did so in his 32nd game on Feb. 16 versus the New Jersey Devils. Along with Craig Anderson, the duo became the first pair of goaltenders in franchise history to each record at least five shutouts in one season while matching the franchise best (10) that was established in 2001-02.

The 6-2, 197-pound native of Holliston, Mass., was also named the Molson Cup Award winner as the team's top player in both December and January.

Mike Condon’s Debut With Ottawa Is Perfect With A 1-0 Shutout Over Vancouver

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen,

Mike Condon had no time for any bells and whistles before stepping into the net for the Ottawa Senators Thursday.

He was wearing a Brand X all-white mask, which looked like it might have been grabbed directly off the shelf of the local sporting goods store.

“We threw a couple of (Senators) stickers on there somewhere,” Condon says. “And my mask guy is on vacation for the next 10 days. I guess I’m going to have to find somebody else.”

In the big picture, it’s a tiny detail in the Senators ever-changing crease.

Condon, 26, certainly had other matters racing through his mind as he flew from Los Angeles to Ottawa Wednesday immediately after being traded here from the Penguins. Adjusting on the fly has quickly become part of the deal in the crazy career of the Princeton grad. Perhaps it only makes sense that he’s ambidextrous, given all the twists and turns and changes in direction he has experienced.

“You guys can look at my (resume) and see how many teams I’ve been on,” says Condon, who is blessed with a healthy sense of humour. “I’m used to the new locker room, the new systems. It’s nice being a goalie. You’ve got one job. It’s keeping the black circle from crossing the red line, so no difficult systems to learn there.”
