Sens C Kelly re-signs with 4-year, $8.5M contract
"It's a great feeling," Kelly said. "I've only ever been on a one-year deal other than my entry-level contract. I couldn't imagine being in a better spot for another four years. I didn't really want to move."
The speedy penalty-killing specialist had played every game of the last three seasons until a leg injury sidelined him for the last seven games of this past regular season and Ottawa's four playoff games.
Kelly has 36 goals and 62 assists in 243 regular-season games, all with the Senators.
