Bulletin: Senators Sign Matt Carkner to a Two-year Contract Extension
OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has signed defenceman Matt Carkner to a two-year contract extension.

Carkner, 28, has appeared in each of the team’s seven regular-season games to date, averaging 18:03 time-on-ice and currently ranking eighth (tied) in the National Hockey League in blocked shots (19). He scored his first NHL goal in the Senators’ 3-2 overtime win against the New York Islanders on Oct. 8. The native of Winchester, Ont., made his NHL debut with the San Jose Sharks in a game against Calgary on Feb. 6, 2006, and tallied his first professional point in that contest with an assist on a goal by current teammate Milan Michalek.

Originally signed by Ottawa on July 3, 2007, Carkner played two seasons with the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. In 134 career games with the B-Sens, Carkner recorded 46 points (13 goals and 33 assists), while adding 428 penalty minutes. He played one game for Ottawa in 2008-09 and was held scoreless with no penalty minutes in the team’s 6-4 loss at Boston on Jan. 8.

A second-round draft choice (58th overall) of the Montreal Canadiens in 1999, he signed as a free agent with the Sharks in 2001 and played for five seasons with San Jose’s former AHL affiliate, the Cleveland Barons. In nine career NHL games, Carkner has tallied three points (one goal and two assists), while notching 21 penalty minutes.
