Senators sign Butler to two-year deal
The Senators have signed restricted free-agent forward Bobby Butler to a two-year contract. Terms of the contract were undisclosed.

Butler, 24, split the 2010-11 season between Ottawa and the team's AHL affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. In 36 NHL games, he had 10 goals and 11 assists. He played steadily in the NHL after Feb. 14.

After the Senators' season ended, he was returned to Binghamton for the AHL playoffs. After scoring 33 points in 47 regular-season games, he finished second on the team with 13 goals in 23 games as Binghamton won its first Calder Cup.

Butler was also the MVP of the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic after totaling 1 goal and 3 assists in the Eastern Conference's 11-8 victory in Hershey, Pa., on Jan. 31.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
