Ottawa Senators forward Connor Brown signed a three-year, $10.8 million contract, the team announced Thursday.

Per the Senators, the deal will see Brown earn $2.8 million in 2020-21 and $4 million in each of the two following seasons.

Brown, 26, recorded career highs in assists (27) and points (43) while playing in 71 games with the Senators last season. He was acquired in a deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs for defenseman Cody Ceci on July 1, 2019.

"We're very happy to have Connor back under contract," Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said. "He brings a veteran presence to our lineup and is a player who can play in different situations. He's durable, has a strong work ethic with great practice habits and is regarded as a leader by his teammates. His ability to play up and down the lineup while producing offensively is especially valuable to us as we continue our transition towards being a consistent winner."

Brown has collected 142 points (59 goals, 83 assists) and 68 penalty minutes in 324 career games with the Maple Leafs and Senators. He was selected by Toronto in the sixth round of the 2012 NHL Draft.
