When director of player personnel Pierre Dorion told the guys on Team 1200's Healthy Scratches program that assistant GM Tim Murray was working on some new contracts this week, he wasn't kidding around.
For the second consecutive day, the Senators have announced another signing that will ultimately affect the minor league depth that is down in Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton. Impending restricted free agent forward Pat Cannone has signed a two-year extension with the Senators.
If you'll recall, Cannone was signed as an undrafted collegiate free agent out of Miami University (Ohio) in the latter stages of the 2010/11 season and remained with the organization on a one-year, two-way contract that had a NHL salary of $600,000 and an AHL salary of $65,000. While the terms of his two-year extension have not been revealed, in his first full professional season, Cannone did finish third on the Binghamton Senators in scoring with 19 goals and 43 points.
Welcome to the offseason folks...
