Senators re-sign forward Grant
The Ottawa Senators re-signed forward Derek Grant to a one-year, two-way contract

Forward Derek Grant signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Ottawa Senators, the team announced Thursday. Financial details were not revealed, but multiple media outlets reported it at $700,000 if he's in the NHL and $85,000 in the American Hockey League.

Grant, 24, was chosen by Ottawa in the fourth round (No. 119) of the 2008 NHL Draft. The Michigan State University product saw his first extended NHL action last season, with two points in 20 games. In 25 NHL games, all with the Senators, he has two points, four penalty minutes and a minus-4 rating.

The 6-foot-3, 206-pound center has 40 goals and 79 points in 183 games with Ottawa's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, and won the Calder Cup with the team in 2011.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
