Bulletin: Senators sign forward Chris Neil to a three-year contract extension

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today that the club has signed forward Chris Neil to a three-year contract extension through the 2015-16 NHL season.

Neil, 33, recently completed his 10th season in the National Hockey League and has played each of his 731 NHL contests for the Senators. His most recent point, an assist in a 5-1 victory at the New York Islanders on April 1, was the 200th of his NHL career.

A native of Flesherton, Ont., Neil concluded the 2011-12 campaign with 28 points (13 goals, 15 assists) in 72 games. That total matched his output from the 2006-07 season, which was his second highest point-producing NHL campaign. Neil established his current career high of 33 points (16 goals, 17 assists) over 79 contests in 2005-06.

The Senators franchise leader in penalty minutes in both the regular season (1,861) and in the post-season (153), Neil became the fourth player (Alfredsson, Phillips, Redden) to play in 700 games for Ottawa when he did so last Jan. 21 at Anaheim. In his career with the club, he has recorded 90 goals and 110 assists. His 200 points rank 13th on the club’s all-time points list.

On April 14, Neil became the 12th player in franchise history to record a playoff overtime-winning goal, when he helped lift the Senators to a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference quarter-final series.

Neil was Ottawa’s sixth-round pick, 161st overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
