Ottawa signs Guillaume Latendresse to one-year deal
Guillaume Latendresse will have a new home next season.
According to Renaud Lavoie of RDS, the concussion-riddled power forward will sign with the Ottawa Senators if he can pass a team physical.
ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun reports it’ll be a one-year deal worth $1.2 million plus bonuses if/when he signs.
UPDATE (3:oo p.m. ET): Ottawa made the signing official, announing a one-year deal.
When Latendresse first arrived in Minnesota from Montreal back in 2009-10, he scored 25 goals in 55 games -- since then, he’s played just 27 games while only scoring eight goals and seven assists.
Ottawa hopes they’ll get a healthy Latendresse, one capable of being their big-bodied goal scorer up front.
