Chris Neil has signed a three-year contract extension with the Senators, the Sun has learned.

It’s believed the deal is worth $5.75 million and will see the team’s career penalty minutes leader make $2 million in 2013-14, $2 million in 2014-15 and $1.75 million in 2015-16.

Neil, who will earn $2 million in 2012-13 as part of his current agreement, could have become an unrestricted free agent next July 1. Instead, on that day, the right winger will get a $200,000 bonus as up-front money on the next season’s salary.

Neil, 33, is coming off one of his best seasons with the Senators, scoring 13 goals and adding 15 assists while amassing 178 PIMs.

In 731 NHL games, all with Ottawa, Neil has racked up 90 goals, 110 assists, 200 points and 1,861 penalty minutes.

Neil was a sixth-round pick (161st overall) of the Senators in the 1998 entry draft.
