SENATORS: The Ottawa Senators signed veteran center David Legwand to a $6 million, two-year contract on Friday.

Legwand split last season between the Nashville Predators and the Detroit Red Wings. He had 51 points in 83 games.

The Detroit native played the first 15 seasons of his NHL career with Nashville before a March 5 trade sent him to the Red Wings. He has 577 points in 977 games.

"David is a good, veteran center, a guy that skates pretty well, gets up and down the ice," Senators general manager Bryan Murray said in a statement.

"We just think the way things shook out for us that having an experienced center that can be a decent faceoff man, be a good defensive player, get points, was very important at this time."

Ottawa needed a top-two center after trading Jason Spezza to the Dallas Stars on Tuesday for right wing Alex Chiasson, a draft pick and two prospects.

The Senators also re-signed defenseman Eric Gryba to a $2.5 million, two-year deal. Gryba had 11 points in 57 games last season.

Murray said the Senators "continue to talk" about a trade, adding "it's just a matter of if we can get satisfaction both ways."
