Ottawa Senators general manager Pierre Dorion announced Friday that defenseman Artem Zub signed a two-year contract extension that carries an average annual value of $2.5 million, according to Sportsnet's Kyle Bukauskas.
The Senators signed Zub to a one-year deal prior to the campaign. The 25-year-old previously spent six seasons in the KHL; in 2019-20, he posted a career-high 22 points in 57 games with SKA Saint Petersburg.
Zub impressed in his first NHL season, showing off his two-way skills while tallying three goals and 11 assists in 47 contests. He averaged 18:23 minutes of ice time per game while playing a key role on the penalty kill.
