OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the club has signed forward Derek Grant to a three-year entry-level contract. Grant will conclude this season with the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, on an amateur tryout agreement.

Grant, 20, was the Senators’ second fourth-round pick (119th overall) in the 2008 National Hockey League Entry Draft. A native of Abbotsford, B.C., Grant recently completed his sophomore season at Michigan State University, which ended when the Spartans were defeated in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association’s playoffs by Alaska-Fairbanks.

Grant played in each of the team’s 38 games this season, leading the Spartans in scoring with 33 points on eight goals and 25 assists. In two years at Michigan State, he scored 20 goals, 43 assists and recorded 54 penalty minutes in 76 games.

Before attending Michigan State, the 6-3, 196-pound Grant played two seasons for the Langley Chiefs of the British Columbia Hockey League. In his second season with Langley, he recorded 60 points (25 goals, 35 assists) in only 35 games. He was named the Chiefs’ rookie of the year in 2007-08 after scoring 63 points (24 goals, 39 assists) in 57 games.

Grant has participated in the Senators summer development camp in each of the last three seasons.
