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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
