Ottawa Extends Chabot on 8-year, $64 Million Deal

 The Ottawa Senators have signed defenseman Thomas Chabot to an eight-year, $64 million ($8 million AAV) contract extension. He is now the fifth-highest paid defenseman in the NHL (along with Jacob Trouba, John Carlson, and Brent Burns at $8million AAV). He enters the 2019-20 season into the final year of his entry-level deal with a $1.223 million AAV. 

Senators Focus On The Rebuild

Chabot, 22, had a breakout season last year scoring 55 points (14 goals, 41 assists) in 70 games for Ottawa and appearing at the 2019 NHL All-Star Game. The defenseman was the only Senator to appear in the All-Star Game. 

Ottawa finished last in the league with 64 points. The Senators front office had been on a full rebuild this past year. Trading top players like Erik Karlsson, Mike Hoffman, Matt Duchene, Mark Stone, and Ryan Dzingel shows Ottawa’s intentions to restart.  Some fans are still uncertain about the current rebuild due to a couple “unstable” situations in the past couple years. Chabot’s signature is the right step for the long-term.
