Turris gets 5-year extension

OTTAWA (AP) - The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Kyle Turris to a 17.5-million, five-year contract extension.

The 23-year-old Turris scored 12 goals and 17 assists last season, both career highs. The deal, which is worth an average of $3.5 million per year, will keep Turris in Ottawa through the 2017-18 season.

Turris was acquired by the Senators in a December 2011 trade with the Coyotes that sent defenseman David Rundblad and a second-round draft pick to Phoenix.

In 186 career games, Turris has 31 goals and 44 assists with 70 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
