Senators sign president Roy Mlakar to one-year contract extension

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators signed president and chief executive officer Roy Mlakar to a one-year contract extension Thursday.

Terms were not released for the extension, which was announced immediately following the Senators’ 5-4 victory over the Florida Panthers.

“Roy has been an important part of the Senators for over a decade,” team owner Eugene Melnyk said in a statement. “He remains deeply committed to our organization and I’m looking forward to continuing to work closely with him in managing the club and our various community initiatives.”
