OTTAWA — The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Scott Sabourin to a one-year, two-way contract.

The deal carries an annual value of US$700,000 in the NHL and $200,000 in the American Hockey League.

The 29-year-old returns to Ottawa after spending last season in the Toronto Maple Leafs organization. He made one appearance at the NHL level and six with the Marlies, scoring two goals and adding 22 penalty minutes with the AHL club.

Sabourin had six points (two goals, four assists) and 33 penalty minutes over 35 regular-season games with Ottawa in 2019-20.

He was initially invited to camp on a professional tryout agreement before signing a one-year, two-way contract with the club.

Sabourin, who is from the Orleans area of Ottawa, has appeared in 314 career AHL games with Manchester, Iowa, Ontario, San Diego, Stockton and Toronto and has 79 points (39 goals, 40 assists) and 668 penalty minutes in that span.

"Scott is a player and person with whom the organization has familiarity," Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said in a release. "He plays hard, has a physical presence, is respected on the ice and maintains strong leadership qualities. We’ll look to him to help guide our younger players and prospects."
