Breaking News: Brady Tkachuk signs 7 year contract with Ottawa Senators before Opening Game of 2021-22 NHL Season

The Ottawa Senators and alternative-captain Brady Tkachuk have come to terms on a 7 year contract-extension.

Currently it is being reported that Tkachuk will not be playing in the opener tonight but will be in the building as they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The deal does not include any signing bonuses.

“This is an exciting day for the Ottawa Senators,” said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion in a statement. “Brady possesses a very dynamic skill set and is a prototypical power forward in today’s NHL. He scores goals, he plays physical and exemplifies what it means to be a pro for all players in our organization.”

Tkachuk led the Senators with 36 points (17 goals, 19 assists) in 56 games last season.

The fourth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, Tkachuk, 22, has 60 goals and 65 assists in 198 career NHL games.

The brother of Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk and the son of former NHLer Keith Tkachuk, Brady is considered a key piece of the Senators’ rebuild.

The native of Scottsdale, Ariz., played for the U.S. under-17 and under-18 programs before playing one season of college hockey at Boston University.

Tkachuk also helped the United States win bronze at the 2018 World Junior Hockey Championship.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
