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

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
