Milan Michalek has re-signed with the Senators for three-years and $12 million.

The Ottawa Senators (and fantasy owners) would like to see more of the Milan Michalek who was active in the team's 2-1 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

Michalek had Ottawa's only goal and fired five SOG. He's had two one-SOG nights sandwiched in between two five-SOG nights. If he can send more pucks on net more often, he could be closer to the sniper who paid off nicely for Ottawa in the past.
