“First, let me say how excited I am about my contract extension and my future with the Senators.
After many conversations with Nicholle over the summer we talked about Ottawa and how great we have been treated by the city, the fans, and the organization. It made complete sense to us if they were interested in extending my contract that I would share this common interest.
I will always have a part of my heart in Ottawa. I feel the city and team has given me so much that I will forever be grateful.
My teammates also played a role in my decision, as I feel we have a group of guys that will go thru hell and back for each other. “
