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.

Guys were making fun of him a little bit after his breakaway that he shot right in [Jake Allen's] chest, but after that he turned it up to beast mode and buried a couple there.
