Senators add Latendresse on one-year deal

by NHL Public Relations / NHL.com

The Ottawa Senators have decided to give Guillaume Latendresse a chance to bounce back from his concussion problems, signing the big forward to a one-year deal worth $1.2 million.

Latendresse had spent the past three seasons with the Minnesota Wild following his trade from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Benoit Pouliot. He had a career year with 37 points in 55 games in his first season in Minnesota, but during the past two seasons he has played just 27 games.

Latendresse passed a physical in Ottawa on Sunday after having received clearance from the Wild?s doctors last month, and his contract includes performance bonuses that could boost Latendresse???s total salary to $2 million, according to RDS.

Latendresse said on his Twitter account last week that he wanted to be closer to his four year-old son who lives in Montreal, which is just a two-hour drive from Ottawa.

Should Latendresse be healthy, he is an interesting addition for the Senators that could be able to provide some offense in a third- or fourth-line role.
