Senators Pageau is entering the final season of this deal
Murray Pam of the Sporting News: Ottawa Senators forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau is entering the final year of his contract. When asked if he’s thought about his future.
“I’m an Ottawa Senator. This is where my career started. This is the team that showed confidence in me. I’m happy here. I love representing the Senators. Every time I wear the logo, I take pride.
Ottawa is close to people I love, my wife, my family, my friends. I’ve got to meet so many people through the years. Like I said I’m happy here. My main focus isn’t about the contract. It’s really about the team – how we’re going to approach and start this year the right way.”
