Sens resign RFA's and UFA's

The Ottawa Senators are pleased to announce that the club has come to terms on a new contract for all star defenseman Erik Karlsson, who agreed to a 7 year deal worth $49M along with a full no-movement clause.

"We are very excited to have a premier offensive defenseman locked up to a long-term deal like this. While defense can be taught, the cool, calm composure that Erik displays is something that only special players possess. We look forward to Erik leading our blueline for the foreseeable future."

The Senators also locked up other key restricted & unrestriced free agents, including:

Nick Foligno - 1 year, $3,750,000
Stephane Da Costa - 1 year, $900,000 ($100,000 AHL)
Jim O'Brien - 3 years, $2,775,000 ($925,000/yr)
Eric Gryba - 2 years, $1,500,000 ($750,000/yr NHL, $85,000/yr AHL)
Rob Klinkhammer - 1 year, $600,000 ($100,000 AHL)
Matt Carkner - 1 year, $925,000
Zenon Konopka - 1 year, $1,150,000
