Senators sign Bass to two-way contract
Ottawa Senators sign Cody Bass to two-way contract.
Cody Bass, who played in 33 NHL games for the Ottawa Senators over the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons, signed a one-year, two-way contract with the team Thursday.

The 23-year-old center spent last season in the AHL with Binghamton, where he finished with 5 goals, 11 points and 109 penalty minutes in 57 games.

Bass made his debut with the Senators in 07-08, putting up 2 goals, 4 points and 19 penalty minutes in 21 games. He added a goal in four postseason games. He was scoreless in 12 NHL games the following season, amassing 15 penalty minutes.

Bass was a fourth-round pick by Ottawa in the 2005 Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
