Sens sign McKenna to one-year deal
The Ottawa Senators signed goaltender Mike McKenna to a one-year, two-way contract on Friday.

McKenna, 28, spent his second consecutive season with the New Jersey Devils organization in 2010-11, appearing in 39 games with the AHL's Albany Devils and playing two games in the NHL. With Albany, he posted a 14-20-2 record with a 3.61 goals-against average and .866 save percentage. In two games with New Jersey, he had one loss, a 3.05 GAA and an .893 save percentage.

Prior to joining the Devils, the St. Louis native spent the 2008-09 season in the Tampa Bay Lightning organization. He played 15 NHL games with the Lightning, posting a 4-8-1 record with a 3.56 GAA and .887 save percentage.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound McKenna has played in six professional seasons, including 164 AHL games with the Norfolk Admirals, Milwaukee Admirals, Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights, Portland Pirates, Lowell Devils and Albany.

McKenna was originally Nashville's sixth-round selection (No. 172) in the 2002 Entry Draft. Prior to being drafted, he played four seasons with the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Association's St. Lawrence Saints.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
