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.
