The Ottawa Senators managed to completely avoid salary arbitration hearings this summer, now that forward Peter Schaefer has signed a multi-year contract.

The Senators announced the signing Friday without providing financial details.

In his seventh NHL season, and third with the Senators, Schaefer recorded career highs in goals (20), assists (30) and penalty minutes (40).

He was one of six Senators to record 20 or more goals and one of five to play in all 82 regular-season games. Schaefer had two game-winning goals on the season and nine two-point games.

The 29-year-old also scored seven playoff points (2-5) during the club's 10 post-season games.

In 338 career games with Ottawa, Schaefer has recorded 41 goals, 71 assists, 112 points and 98 penalty minutes. In 416 career NHL games, he scored 77 goals and has 110 assists and 148 penalty minutes.

Five Senators applied for arbitration this summer. Martin Havlat was traded to Chicago before his hearing, and the other four (Schaefer, Chris Neil, Chris Kelly and Antoine Vermette) all settled before their cases were heard.

Ottawa Senators re-sign left-winger Peter Schaefer gets multi-year deal

Canadian Press
Published: Friday, July 28, 2006

OTTAWA (CP) - Left-winger Peter Schaefer, coming off the best season of his seven-year pro career, landed a $8.4-million US, four-year contract in re-signing with the Ottawa Senators.

Schaefer, who earned $988,000 US last season, will get $1.7 million next season and $2.1 million, $2.3 million and $2.3 million in the remaining seasons of the new pact.

The 29-year-old native of Yellow Grass, Sask., posted career highs in goals (20), assists (30) and penalty minutes (40) while appearing in all 82 games in 2005-2006, which was his third season with the Senators since the trade that saw defenceman Sami Salo go to Vancouver in 2002.



This is great news for Ottawa!!!!

With all the players that they've lost, I'm sure Sens fans are glad to have at least kept Schaefer.

He took his time, but he finally played the way he should have been playing last season. He was kind of under-achieving over his career IMO, so last season him getting 20 goals last season (and 30 assists) may be a sign of things to come We'll have to see if he keeps playing at the same level this year and be one of the top two-way players in the NHL.
