Dion Phaneuf: A by-the-numbers look at new Senators defenceman
Trade sends $7 million US cap hit to Ottawa
The Toronto Maple Leafs traded captain Dion Phaneuf to the rival Ottawa Senators in a huge nine-player deal on Tuesday.
Here's a by-the-numbers look at Ottawa's new defenceman:
1 — Phaneuf won a world junior championship gold medal with Canada in 2005.
2 — The number Phaneuf will wear with the Senators. He previously sported No. 3 with the Calgary Flames and Toronto, but that number is currently held by Senators defenceman Marc Methot.
3 — The number of NHL all-star games Phaneuf has appeared in, twice as a member of the Flames and once as a Leaf.
7 — The number of playoff games the Maple Leafs appeared in with Phaneuf as captain.
9 — The Flames selected Phaneuf ninth overall in the 2003 NHL draft.
20 — The number of goals Phaneuf scored as a rookie in the 2005-06 season. He has not reached that milestone since.
44 — The number of points Phaneuf totalled in his best offensive season (2011-12) as a Leaf.
60 — The number of points Phaneuf scored in the 2007-08 season, when he was a finalist for the Norris trophy as best defenceman.
423 — The number of regular season games Phaneuf played as a Leaf, tied for 55th-most in team history.
1,120 — The number of penalty minutes the hard-hitting Phaneuf has piled up over his NHL career.
7 million — Phaneuf's annual cap hit in US dollars until his contract expires in 2021.
