OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the club re-signed forward Jack Rodewald to a one-year, two-way contract. The contract will carry an annual value of $725,000 in the National Hockey League and $100,000 in the American Hockey League.
Rodewald, aged 25, set professional career highs in all offensive categories last season, including goals (23), assists (24) and points (47) with the Belleville Senators. His team-leading 23 goals occurred over only 59 AHL games in 2018-19. Rodewald was also recalled to Ottawa on four occasions, playing in a career-best six NHL games.
Undrafted, the 6-2, 188-pound, Winnipeg native has scored 55 goals in 187 games over three years with the Senators' AHL affiliates in Binghamton and Belleville. He has appeared in 10 NHL games with Ottawa.
Rodewald began his Senators career by attending Ottawa's 2016 rookie tournament and main training camp before starting the season with the ECHL's Wichita Thunder. He joined the organization by agreeing to a professional tryout in November of 2016 before earning a two-year, entry-level contract in October of 2017.
