You Can Never Have Too Many Helenic Warriors Playing Left Wing

Call off the search. Crate up the bloodhounds. Bryan Murray has been found alive and living in a utility closet deep in the bowels of ScotiaBank Place. That’s right folks, the Ottawa Senators have announced a Free Agent Signing!

The Senators, (have) inked free-agent right winger Niko Dimitrakos to a one-year deal. Dimitrakos, 28, is a veteran of 158 NHL games. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder has scored 24 goals and 38 assists with San Jose and Philadelphia.

A native of Somerville, Mass., Dimitrakos was originally a fifth-round pick of the Sharks in 1999. He ended last season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves.

Terms of the deal were not announced, but sources tell Five For Smiting that the phrase “unlimited supply of Spam” appears in multiple clauses of the contract.

So congratulations Bryan! Take a break. You’ve earned it. After all, figuring out a way to tap into that elusive Athenian-American market is no easy feat.

And you’ll be happy to know that this momentous occasion will completely allow us, as fans, to move past not getting Ryan Smyth. Totally.
