Sens sign Lazar to entry level deal

The Ottawa Senators announced today that they have signed 2013 first round pick Curtis Lazar to a three-year entry level deal. He becomes the first member of the Sens 2013 draft class to be signed to a contract.

From the official release

The 6-0, 196-pound centre has recorded 93 points (58 goals, 35 assists) and 103 penalty minutes over 141 career WHL contests, all of which have occurred with the Oil Kings. He has also registered 18 goals and 13 assists over 46 career WHL post-season games.

Lazar recently attended Team Canada’s national junior development camp which was held in early August in Montreal and Lake Placid, N.Y. He has previous international experience in having helped Canada win the Ivan Hlinka tournament after recording three goals and one assist over five games in the summer of 2012.

Here's what Sens GM Bryan Murray had to say on the Lazar signing...

Well Curtis is a first round pick and obviously a player and prospect that we think has a good upside. We're trying to get our best players tied up and he is certainly one of the guys of the future in this organization so we're very, very happy to get him signed at this point.

Lazar has been largely held out of training camp work — as a precaution — to this point with an upper body injury, though he could see his first NHL action on Thursday when the Sens host the Maple Leafs, provided he gets the green light.
