OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the team has signed defenceman Cody Goloubef to a one-year, two-way prorated contract for the duration of the 2020-21 season. The contract carries an annual value of $700,000 in the National Hockey League and $150,000 in the American Hockey League.
Goloubef, 31, returns to the Senators after previously being acquired by Ottawa from Boston in exchange for forward Paul Carey on Jan. 11, 2019. Signed to a professional tryout contract by the team's AHL affiliate, the Belleville Senators, ahead of the current campaign, he has tallied four points (three goals, one assist) and 17 penalty minutes while skating in each of the B-Sens' 19 contests to date this season.
A native of Mississauga, Ont., Goloubef was originally selected in the second round (37th overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets. In 160 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, the Colorado Avalanche, the Senators and the Detroit Red Wings, he has recorded 25 points (three goals, 22 assists) and 76 penalty minutes.
Internationally, Goloubef most recently represented his country when he helped Team Canada earn a bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. He was also a member of Canada's gold medal-winning World Junior Championship team in 2009.
