Senators Re-Sign Chris Neil

OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators general manager John Muckler announced the re-signing of right-winger Chris Neil to a multi-year agreement.

In his fourth season with the Senators and in the NHL , Neil reached five career milestones and set single-season highs in goals (16), assists (17) and points (33) over 79 games. His 204 penalty minutes on the season made him the Senators’ all-time leader (776) in that category. The 27-year-old was also just one of three NHLers this season to record 15 goals or more and over 150 penalty minutes.

In 301 career games with Ottawa, Neil has recorded 40 goals, 36 assists, 76 points and 776 penalty minutes.

Great move. Neil is a great fighter and put up decent numbers last season too.

One of the most annoying but effective players at his role in the game today. Good move.

I expected him to avoid arbitration and it looks like he did. Great move for the Senators. Not only does he provide grit, toughness, and 20 goal potential, but he'll be looked to for leadership this season too I think. He should see even more PP time this season too with Havlat gone and no more Chara to stand in front of the net, so this will help Ottawa for sure.

Great move and it's nice to see Neil get a good deal for himself. It's well earned.

Eh.

I think he could have made a little more, or at least, I'd like to see him make a little more.

I love Neil. He's one of three Senators players I actually really like (McG, Fish, Neil) and its great to see he'll be sticking around. As a side note, I saw him in a tournament this week and he looked to be in really good shape. I think he bulked up a bit from last year and he was looking very, very good on the ice. I wouldn't be surprised if he surpassed last years points/PIM totals.

3 years 3.3 million is about right. Does not put up huge points but does his job.
