The Ottawa Senators and left wing Colin Greening have agreed to a three-year contract extension. The deal reached Monday will keep the 27-year-old forward away from free agency following the upcoming season. Greening will earn $2 million in the first year of the deal, $2.75 million in the 2015-16 season, and $3.2 million in the final year. Greening had eight goals and 11 assists with Ottawa in the lockout-shortened 2013 season. He added three goals and an assist in 10 playoff games. The 6-foot-2, 217-pound Greening has 31 goals and 38 assists in 153 career NHL games. Greening, a seventh-round draft pick in 2005, won the Calder Cup in 2011 with the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League.

Senators Sign Forward Colin Greening To A Three-Year Contract Extension by   Steven Ellis

The Ottawa Senators signed forward Colin Greening to a three-year contract extension. Greening was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the seventh round (204th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. After graduating from Cornell University in 2010, Greening joined the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League, the affiliate of the Senators. On January 12, 2012, Greening...

Bobby Ryan Asks…What do you know about Bobby Ryan?

Bobby Ryan took on the role of a 'Sens TV' reporter, and asked some Sens fans what they know about...Bobby Ryan.     If there's been good news about the Senators in the media this off season, it's mostly been about the deal the Senators made to bring in Ryan, and the positive attitude he's shown since he arrived. One of the first questions that...

Sens' Michalek has unorthodox treatment on knee

Milan Michalek did not want to face the prospect of recovering from another major knee surgery. So instead of going under the knife the Senators winger opted for a non-traditional procedure this summer in Germany that involved blood injections to his chronically injured knee. Michalek says the overseas procedure was a resounding success and he will be ready for the start of Senators...

via Pierre McGuire: Bobby Ryan Digestion History

Bobby Ryan had a slight off year in 2012/13. His shooting percentage was the lowest of his career while his goal, shot and assist per game rates were the lowest since his rookie season, stemming in part from only seeing the ice for 16:35 a night after averaging 19:01 the previous three seasons. Those looking for further explanation got it this morning when Pierre McGuire made...

WATCH: Bobby Ryan asks Senators fans about...Bobby Ryan

Fans of the Ottawa Senators should be extremely excited to have Bobby Ryan on their team. Most are, but few seem to actually know what Ryan looks like. In a bit very similar to one pulled off by Matt Harvey of the New York Mets, Ryan took to the streets of Ottawa and asked fans about the team's biggest acquisition - himself.  While it would have been nice to see Ryan...

Bobby Ryan Interviews Ottawa Senators Fans About Himself, Finds Majority Don’t Recognize Him (Video)

Bobby Ryan made a splash in Anaheim after recording four 30-goal seasons with the Ducks, but his identity is not quite established yet in his new home of Ottawa. Ryan was traded to the Senators in July, and the star forward took a page out of Matt Harvey’s playbook as he took to the streets to ask Sens fans their thoughts about their newest big-time acquisition. Despite spewing...

Senators fans fail to recognize Bobby Ryan

Taking a cue from Matt Harvey and Jimmy Fallon, Bobby Ryan and the Ottawa Senators worked together on this new video where Ryan went around Ottawa and asked Senators fans about their offseason.  It’s especially funny because no one recognized him except for a few girls towards the end of the video.  Certainly makes you wonder how good of fans each of these people actually were...

Three Sens Crack Pronman's Top 100 Prospects

With the conclusion of this year's rookie tournament in London, Ontario and the Senators running the tables with a 3-0 record, it only seems fitting that I devote a short blog post to some related prospect news. Yesterday, Corey Pronman published his list of the top 100 prospects in hockey yesterday for ESPN Insider. (Note: it's behind a paywall.) Of particular note...

Melnyk Speaks: Refers to Jim Watson an Alien, Needs Army Before Visiting RCR, etc.

Senators owner Eugene Melnyk made a rare (ha!) appearance on the Fan 590's Prime Time Sports to talk almost explicitly about his difficulty dealing with the City of Ottawa over the sole-sourcing of a prospective casino. To listen to the Euge's interview, you can listen to or download it off the Fan's website (right click, save this file) or you can simply stream it below...

Sens Extend Greening - 3 Years, $2.65M AAV

When SensChirp first had inklings of a Greening extension back in July, I said: "Compared to 2011/12 Greening had a down year (albeit a good postseason). A pending unrestricted free agent next summer, if the organization feels he's worth committing to, now is probably the time to do it. I haven't really given too much thought to what he's worth, partly cause...

Travis Yost: Bobby Ryan in the Far East

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- In a summer of bizarre stories, it seems only appropriate that one more drops right before the start of training camp. Take it away, Pierre McGuire (via Scott of The 6th Sens): Pierre says Bobby Ryan was sick most of last year with a "digestive illness" he picked up in the "far east"— ⓢⓒⓞâ“...

Spezza eager, Michalek good to go

It must get like this around a theatre production toward the end of rehearsals. Actors get antsy to get on with the show. As they finish the last of their casual dress rehearsal skates National Hockey League players are ready to get back to work. Depending on how successful their teams were in the spring some have been away from the action for four months. In the case of the Ottawa...
