Senators Extend Daigle's Contract
Nov. 08, 1997
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) _ The Ottawa Senators signed forward Alexandre Daigle to a one-year contract extension Friday.
Daigle, 22, was the No. 1 pick in the 1993 NHL draft, signing a much-publicized five-year, $12.25-million deal after a stellar junior career.
Terms of the contract extension were not disclosed.
Daigle, the top-earning Senator at $3.1 million last season, had his best year last season when he collected 26 goals and 25 assists. Hampered by an elbow injury this season, he has just three goals and two assists in eight games to rank 11th among Senators in scoring.
