3-year, $5.75 mil extension. Don't see many players stick with one organization their whole career, but it looks like Neil may be one of them. Great deal for Ottawa. A great team guy and a fan favorite.

Today's fun fact: he has never been suspended.

Bummer. Good for Chris though. He's been my absolute favorite non-Wing since he played in the playoffs with the Muskegon Fury in 1998-99 and his years with the Griffins when they were Ottawa's farm team. :thumbup:

With his style of play, he might be able to play into his forties.

Same here. He's been among my favorite players since he broke into the league. Guy is a true warrior.

Agreed with the comments, Neil is one of my favorite non-wings as well, and i've posted many times that i'd love to see him here someday. Ottawa is smart for locking him up, he is an asset to their developing system.

Him and Clutterbuck have been helping me own the hits category in my fantasy league for the past few years also, had to toss that in there. :P

Today's fun fact: he has never been suspended.


This I did not know.



I will always remember this hit, one of the hardest i've ever seen.

I've always like Neil, he plays the game the right way good for Ottawa to lock him up!
