Senators Extend Greening

Avoiding unrestricted free agency next season, the Ottawa Senators signed forward Colin Greening to a new 3-year contract extension on Monday.

Greening's deal is worth $7.95 million, which works out to be a $2.65 million cap hit for each year of the deal, which isn't too bad for a depth scoring forward.

Last season, Greening played 47 games, scoring 8 goals and adding 11 assists.  Greening ranked 243rd in pool scoring, 170th among all forwards.  I currently have him as a late depth forward for my draft, projecting him at 35 points this year.  With all the changes happening in Ottawa, I think there will be a period of adjustment, which may be tougher for some depth players, more than the skilled players.
