OTTAWA - Maybe it was all the talk about the Senators hitting a fundraising milestone, but the team was still in the spirit of giving when it announced forward Clarke MacArthur has signed a long-term extension.

The contract will pay the winger an average salary of $4.65 million per season through the 2019-20 campaign.

The signing is the second announced by the team in as many days after local product Mark Borowiecki inked a three-year extension Monday.
