Bulletin: Senators sign Filip Kuba to a three-year contract extension
OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today that the club has re-signed defenceman Filip Kuba to a three-year contract extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Kuba, a native of Ostrava, Czech Republic, has recorded two goals, 27 assists, 24 penalty minutes and is a team-leading +8 in 54 games with the Senators this season. The 6-4, 226-pound defenceman has 236 points (57-179) and 263 penalty minutes over 585 career NHL games.

Kuba was acquired by Ottawa on Aug. 29, 2008 in a trade that saw the Senators send defenceman Andrej Meszaros to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Kuba, Alexandre Picard and a first-round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft (the draft pick was later sent to the New York Islanders as part of the Mike Comrie/Chris Campoli trade on Feb. 20).

The 32-year-old was the Florida Panthers’ eighth-round choice (192nd overall) in the 1995 entry draft. He played his first two NHL seasons with the Panthers. Kuba was traded to the Calgary Flames for Rocky Thompson on March 16, 2000, but claimed by the Minnesota Wild from the Flames in the expansion draft on June 23, 2000. He played the next five seasons, from 2000-01 to 2005-06, with the Wild. He joined the Tampa Bay Lightning as a free agent in July of 2006.
