Bulletin: Senators Agree to Terms with Goaltender Brian Elliott

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager John Muckler today announced the club has agreed to terms on a contract with goaltending prospect Brian Elliott.

Elliott, 21, enjoyed a decorated National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) goaltending career at the University of Wisconsin. Elliott had played in 86 games over his four-year college career (85 starts), recording a 51-27-6 record, a 1.78 goals-against average and .931 save percentage.

Elliott backstopped Wisconsin to a NCAA national championship last season while leading all division-1A goaltenders in winning percentage (.814, 27-5-3), goals-against average (1.55) and save percentage (.938). For his accomplishments, Elliott was nominated for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, which is awarded annually to the top player in college hockey.

"We're pleased to have Brian under contract as he had a great college career," said Senators general manager John Muckler. "He will join Binghamton and work with Dave (Cameron, head coach) and the B-Sens for the balance of their season."
 
Drafted by the Senators in the ninth round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, 291st overall, Elliott completed his college career last weekend, backstopping a rebuilding Wisconsin team to a third-place finish in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA). Elliott was named WCHA goaltending champion and all-WCHA second-team goaltender at the WCHA awards banquet on March 15.

Elliott will be joined in Binghamton by two more Senators prospects. Defenceman Tomas Kudelka, who had 14 goals and 27 assists in 59 games with the Western Hockey Leagues's Lethbridge Hurricanes, and forward Kaspar Daugavins, who recorded 18 goals and 42 assists in 61 games with the Toronto St. Michael's Majors of the Ontario Hockey League, are also expected to join the B-Sens roster.
 
BRIAN ELLIOTT, Goaltender, Catches left, 6'2", 187 lbs.
Born: April 5, 1985 (Newmarket, Ont.)
Drafted: Ottawa's ninth-round choice (291st overall) in 2003 NHL Entry Draft
