The Ottawa Senators have avoided the arbitration route and have signed restricted free agents Chris Campoli and Peter Regin to new contracts.

Peter Regin, a Denmark native, registered a decent 13 goals, 16 assists and a plus-10 rating in 75 games in the 2009-2010 season for the Senators. In the playoffs, Regin truly made a name for himself in Ottawa.

Registering four points in six games, he became a two-way player during this time. The more responsibility Regin was given, the more he truly became a household name in Ottawa. The new contract will pay him $950,000 the first year and $1.05 million in the second year.

Chris Campoli was originally acquired from the New York Islanders for Dean Mcammond and a 1st round draft pick. He registered 4 goals, 14 assists and a minus-3 rating in 67 games for the Senators. Campoli is set to make $1.4 million this season. He is now recovering from a sports hernia that he played through most of last season.

Ottawa GM Bryan Murray is pleased these deals could be done before the arbitration hearings were to take place. As the hearings are "not fun" and player/management relationship can be strained, to say the least.

With these recent signings, the Ottawa Senators can now look to next season.
