The Ottawa Senators have re-signed forward Erik Condra to a two-year contract worth $2.25M.
The Senators drafted Condra with the 211th overall pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. After a very successful college career, the Senators assigned Condra to their AHL affiliate, the Binghamton Senators for the 2009–10 season. In his first professional season, Condra had 11 goals and 38 points while appearing in all 80 games for the Senators, however, Binghamton failed to reach the playoffs.
During the 2012 NHL Lockout, Condra spent time with the Fussen Leopards, a third division club in Germany. After dominating at that level, he moved up to the second-tier league Eishockey-Bundesliga, joining fellow NHLers Matt D’Agostini and Rick DiPietro with SC Riessersee. When the NHL season began, Condra was one of six players to appear in each of Ottawa’s 48 games in 2012-13, registering 12 points. He ranked fourth among Senators with seven post-season points in ten games.
