Alex Auld and the Ottawa Senators have agreed on a $2-million two-year contract. "We like his character, we like his ability," Murray said. "We know that, if he gets called upon to go in net, he can do that."

This will be Auld's fifth team (previously - Vancouver, Florida, Boston, Phoenix) since being drafted and is looking to compete with Gerber for the #1 spot. "I feel like I'm capable of being a number one goalie, and I feel Martin Gerber is capable of being a number one goalie." Auld said.
