The Ottawa Senators have signed highly touted free agent goaltender Matt O’Connor to a two-year entry-level contract.

O’Connor gets max entry level deal for his age: Two-year, two-way deal that max’es out at $925K in NHL, bonuses in.

The 23-year-old was reportedly considering offers from the Sens, Rangers, Oilers and Canucks.

The 6-foot-5, Toronto native had a 25-4-4 record to go along with a 2.18 G.A.A. and a .927 save percentage with the Boston University Terriers this season.

Sens GM Bryan Murray now has some decisions to make in goal.

Robin Lehner is under contract for two more years with a cap hit of $2.25 million and Craig Anderson signed a three-year extension worth $12.6 million last summer.

Andrew Hammond, who burst on to the scene in February and guided Ottawa to a playoff spot, is a restricted free agent.

Senators spoke with Andrew Hammond’s agent two weeks ago, just general conversation, no specifics. Haven’t talked since. But lots of time

O’Connor went undrafted when he was first eligible at the 2010 NHL Draft.
