Senators sign Lazar to entry-level contract

The Ottawa Senators on Tuesday signed 2013 first-round pick Curtis Lazar to a three-year, entry-level contract.

"Curtis is a first-round pick and obviously a player and prospect that we think has a good upside," Senators general manager Bryan Murray told the team's website. "We're trying to get our best players tied up and he is certainly one of the guys of the future in this organization so we're very, very happy to get him signed at this point."

The 17th pick of the draft, Lazar had 38 goals and 61 points in 72 games with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League last season, and then had nine goals and two assists in 20 playoff games.

The 6-foot, 190-pound center helped Canada win the gold medal at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, and also attended Canada's national junior evaluation camp in August.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
