Kelly Gets Extended for Four

At the Draft, it was announced that the Senators signed Chris Kelly to a 4-year deal worth about $2.2 million per season. Kelly, used as a third or fourth line centre on the team provides some good face-off ability and some scoring. Kelly had 30 points (11G, 19A) in 75 games for the Senators and won't likely be a high draft pick in anyone's pool. His return to the Senators should keep his numbers consistent though, if they don't go up with better linemates.

Although Ray Emery was waived on Friday, he still hasn't officially left the team sheet, so his numbers will count for the time being. Right now, the Sens have 13 active players at a cap hit of $41.8 million.
