The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Kyle Turris to a $17.5-million, five-year contract extension.

The 23-year-old native of Burnaby, B.C., recorded 12 goals and 17 assists last season, both career highs.

The deal, which is worth an average of $3.5-million per year, will keep Turris in Ottawa through the 2017-18 season.

Turris was acquired by the Senators in a December trade with the Coyotes that sent defenceman David Rundblad and a second-round draft pick to Phoenix.

In 186 career games, Turris has 31 goals and 44 assists with 70 penalty minutes.
