Brian Elliott re-signs with Ottawa

Badger alum Brian Elliott, the #1a (aka: Backup for now, Starter of the future) goaltender for the Senators and defender of Ottawa from rogue gangs of moose, has avoided arbitration with Ottawa and has resigned for two years.

Financial terms were not released in the NHL.com story or on TSN (as of 4:51 today). I'll update as they become available.

UPDATE: Per THN, Elliott will earn $800,000 in 2009-10 and $900,000 in 2010-11. (In case you were wondering, Elliott's previous contract was for $757,720 per year in 2007-08 and 2008-09, per Cap Geek.)
