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.
