News Release: Senators sign goaltender Chris Driedger to entry-level contract

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the club has signed goaltender Chris Driedger to a three-year entry-level contract.

Driedger, 19, was the Senators’ third-round selection (76th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft, which was held in Pittsburgh. He recently completed his fourth season of major junior hockey with the Western Hockey League’s Calgary Hitmen, ranking fifth among league goaltenders in save percentage (.918) and tying for seventh in wins (28).

The 6-3, 200-pound netminder has earned a record of 94-46-15 including eight shutout victories over 170 career WHL contests with the Hitmen and Tri-City Americans. On Jan. 31, he became only the sixth goaltender in WHL history to be credited with a goal when scored one of Calgary’s two markers in an eventual 5-2 loss to the Kootenay Ice in Cranbrook, B.C.

A Winnipeg native, Driedger surpassed current Los Angeles Kings’ goaltender Martin Jones to become the Hitmen’s all-time saves leader when he made his 3,375th stop for the club in Calgary’s 7-4 home win over Brandon on Feb. 1.
