Sens land free agent goaltender Matt O’Connor


The Ottawa Senators have signed highly touted free agent goaltender Matt O’Connor to a two-year entry-level contract.

The 23-year-old was reportedly considering offers from the Sens, Rangers, Oilers and Canucks.

The 6-foot-5, Toronto native had a 25-4-4 record to go along with a 2.18 G.A.A. and a .927 save percentage with the Boston University Terriers this season.

Sens GM Bryan Murray now has some decisions to make in goal.

Robin Lehner is under contract for two more years with a cap hit of $2.25 million and Craig Anderson signed a three-year extension worth $12.6 million last summer.

Andrew Hammond, who burst on to the scene in February and guided Ottawa to a playoff spot, is a restricted free agent.

O’Connor went undrafted when he was first eligible at the 2010 NHL Draft.

Report: Sabres to sign Eichel’s college linemate

2015 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Championship - Northeast Regional

Call it an attempt to make Jack Eichel’s decision on whether to leave college this summer easier.

The Buffalo Sabres are reportedly in talks to sign Eichel’s Boston University linemate, Evan Rodrigues to a two-year, entry-level contract.

The Sabres of course earned the second overall selection at the June NHL Draft over the weekend and will likely select Eichel with the pick.

Rodrigues spent much of this season on Eichel’s wing.

The 5-foot-11 forward had 21 goals and 61 points in 41 games this season good for second in NCAA Division I scoring behind only Eichel.
