Connor Brown Re-Signed to 3 Years at $3.6M

Sens and Brown avoid today’s arbitration with the last minute deal

About an hour before his arbitration hearing was supposed to start, news of a new contract for Connor Brown has broken.

The extension was apparently finished late last night, and carries a three year term at an average of $3.6M. The salary breaks down to $2.8M next season, and $4M in each of the other two years.

The Sens most important RFA put up 43 points in the shortened 71 game season last year, split between 16 goals and a career high 27 assists. Brown mostly played on the wing of Jean-Gabriel Pageau last season, but put up points at a higher pace when centred by Chris Tierney.

Three years takes Brown just into the window when the team expects to start truly contending, and the average value is a nice raise for Brown while not being an overpay for someone who might be passed in the lineup in that time.
