Sens, Greening agree to extension

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.
