Senators sign forward MacArthur away from rival Maple Leafs

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators began the process of patching up their forward lines, signing forward Clarke MacArthur to a two-year contract.

MacArthur is a forward who can play on a checking line but also has a bit of a scoring touch. He had back-to-back 20-goal seasons with Toronto in 2010-11 and 2011-12.

In seven seasons with Buffalo, Atlanta and Toronto, MacArthur has 93 goals and 120 assists in 403 games.

The Senators lost captain Daniel Alfredsson, who signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
