The Ottawa Senators have locked up one of their elite blueliners, as sources tell TSN the team has signed defenceman Wade Redden to a two-year contract.

Speculation is that the deal is worth $13 million. The team is expected to make a formal announcement over the next 24 hours.

Redden, 29, was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on Saturday. The deal will pay him $6.5 million in each of the next two seasons, making him the highest-paid Ottawa player ahead of captain Daniel Alfredsson's $4.67-million salary.

Redden scored 50 points, and posted a plus-35 rating, in 65 regular season games in 2005-2006, then added ten points in nine playoff games.

During his nine-year career in Ottawa, Redden has tallied 336 points in 694 games, with an impressive plus-147 rating.

Drafted second overall by the Islanders in the 1995 entry draft, he was acquired for Bryan Berard and Martin Straka in January 1996.

Kudos To Redden!!!

He could have made more money on the open market, but he took less to stay with a team that he respects and vice versa!!

For this, I give him :thumbsup: :thumbsup:!!!

Unlike Chara, who only wanted the big bucks!!:thumbsdow
