News Release: Senators sign forward Colin Greening to a three-year contract extension\r\n

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today that the club has signed forward Colin Greening to a three-year contract extension through the end of the 2016-17 NHL season.

Greening, 27, played in 47 National Hockey League games for Ottawa in 2012-13, registering 19 points (eight goals, 11 assists), a plus-five rating, 11 penalty minutes and 122 hits. He also appeared in each of the Senators’ 10 playoff games, recording three goals and four points. He became the 14th player in Senators franchise history to record a post-season game-winning goal in overtime, with his double-overtime marker against the Pittsburgh Penguins on May 19 (2-1 win).

A native of St. John’s, N.L., the 6-2, 217-pound forward has recorded 31 goals, 38 assists and 67 penalty minutes over 153 career NHL games, all of which have occurred with Ottawa. Greening made his NHL debut on Feb. 1, 2011, and played in 24 games during his first NHL season of 2010-11. Following the completion of the NHL campaign, he was assigned to the American Hockey League’s Binghamton Senators, where he helped the club win the 2011 Calder Cup.

Prior to playing professionally, Greening played four seasons with the Eastern College Athletic Conference’s Cornell University Big Red. He was selected the ECAC hockey-student athlete of the year and was recognized with the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in NCAA men’s division I hockey, at the conclusion of his senior season.

Greening was Ottawa’s seventh-round selection, 204th overall, in the 2005 NHL Draft.
