by Sens Communications @Media_Sens / Ottawa Senators

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that they have signed the team's general manager Pierre Dorion to a three-year contract extension through the 2021-22 season.

"The goal is to win the Stanley Cup," said team owner Eugene Melnyk. "Having come within one goal of last season's Stanley Cup Final, we were hopeful entering this season. Obviously, our results have challenged those expectations. What remains unchanged is the dedication that goes into evaluating every aspect of this organization."

Under Pierre's leadership, the Ottawa Senators will concentrate on building a foundation of sustainable success.

"Today's announcement reflects a renewed commitment to scouting, drafting and development. It may require changes to our lineup. Rest assured, we will only tolerate pain with an endgame in mind: building an organization that wins - at all levels - year in and year out."

Additionally, Tom Anselmi will be vacating his role as President and CEO. We thank Tom for his contributions to the organization and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
