“We’re thrilled to have come to an agreement with Evgenii,” said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion in a statement. “He’s an elite offensive talent and a very consistent scorer as demonstrated by his point totals over the last three seasons. This is a key signing for us as it adds a player who will help us produce offensively and one with a proven track record on the power-play.”
