Senators re-sign Neil.

Neil to remain with Senators for 3 more years.

The Ottawa Senators have re-signed gritty forward Chris Neil to a reported three-year contract extension worth $5.75 million, in which he’s earned $2 million per season in the first two seasons, and $1.75 million in the final season. The new contract would commence in 2013-14.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: This shouldn’t be surprising. Neil is considered a valuable part of the Senators core group and obviously want to keep him around a while. His new contract pays him just over $1.9 million per season as an annual average salary, meaning he’s making pretty much the same as he’s making ($2 million) on his current contract.

  1. Considering prust just signed for 2.5 per I would have thought neil could of gotten more. Must of taken less to stay in ottawa?

  2. Considering some of the money being thrown around this summer he seemingly did take a ‘hometown’ discount. The contract takes him into his 37th year so it gives some security for Neil and his family. Great signing by Ottawa for a heart and soul guy.

  3. Prust got more because of Quebec taxes. His take home might work out to be a little more than Prust in the end.
