Your Ottawa Senators continue their off-season rebuilding of the team as they announce the signing of forward Erik Condra to a two year, one-way deal worth $1.25 million, $625,000 per year.
Condra is a second year pro who suited up for 26 games in Ottawa last season after the Sens made a number of trades. Playing primarily on the third line, Condra put up six goals and 11 points in his time in the nation’s capital. Following his strong showing in the NHL, Condra went down to Binghamton and helped the Baby Sens with its first ever Calder Cup.
Coming off four good years at the University of Notre Dame, Condra put up 38 points in his rookie pro season with the B-Sens last year. With great speed and tons of hockey sense, Condra took advantage of his ice time and seemed to impress Sens management enough to get a one way deal.
This signing comes off the heels of Ottawa signing free agent tough guy Zenon Kenopka to a one year deal. With Condra’s one-way deal, and the ones given to Zach Smith and Colin Greening, Ottawa now has 11 forwards on one-way deals. With RFA Bobby Butler still to be signed, Ottawa’s forward ranks are pretty much set for next season. Now its just a matter of where players will be slotted.
Look for Condra to line up on the third line and play a hard nosed, defensive game with a combination of either Smith, Greening, Nick Foligno or Chris Neil as his line mates.
