The Ottawa Senators are rewarding goalie Brian Elliott for his fine rookie season by giving him a two-year contract.

The deal that will pay Elliott $800,000 next season and $900,000 in the 2010-11 campaign was announced by the Senators on Tuesday.

Elliott, 24, played in 31 games with Ottawa last season, going 16-8-3 with a 2.77 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage. He set a franchise record for a rookie goalie when he won eight consecutive games from March 5-21, and earned his first NHL shutout on March 29 by making 20 saves in a 3-0 win at Tampa Bay.

Elliott also played in 30 games last season with the AHL’s Binghamton Senators, posting an 18-8-1 record with two shutouts, a 2.31 GAA and a .926 save percentage.
Even though there is so much hype about Leclaire, I really think Elliot is the future of the senators, he has most of the skills needed to be successful at the NHL if give time to finish growing.

Please post what the senators' have done and what you think they should do this off season.
i think they should work more harder which they are. With the signing of Kovalev. that should bring not just offense and hopes to the playoffs
