Senators re-sign defenseman Grant for one year
The Ottawa Senators re-signed defenseman Alex Grant to a one-year, two-way contract.

The Ottawa Senators on Tuesday announced that they have re-signed free-agent defenseman Alex Grant to a one-year, two-way contract. Financial terms of the contract were not revealed.

Grant, 25, was acquired from the Anaheim Ducks at the NHL Trade Deadline on March 5. He made his NHL debut with the Ducks during the 2013-14 season, appearing in two games and scoring two goals.

Grant had two goals and 10 assists in 19 games for Binghamton in the American Hockey League following the trade. He had seven goals and 27 points in 52 games for Anaheim's AHL affiliate in Norfolk.

A fourth-round pick (No. 118) by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2007 NHL Draft, Grant has 26 goals, 99 points and 226 penalty minutes in 196 AHL games.

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.'
