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.
