Senators sign journeyman forward Robitaille to add depth

OTTAWA -- Veteran forward Randy Robitaille signed a
one-year, $625,000 contract Tuesday with the Ottawa Senators, the
ninth team of his career.

The 32-year-old Robitaille, released from his Russian team, must
clear NHL waivers by Wednesday before officially joining the
Senators.

"He's a veteran hockey player and a local guy," said general
manager Bryan Murray. "We know that he can play in this league and
provide depth."

In 14 games with Yaroslavl Lokomotiv this season, Robitaille had
three goals and six assists. He has 227 points (74-153) and 183
penalty minutes in 463 career games with Boston,
Nashville,
Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, New York Islanders,
Minnesota, Atlanta and
Philadelphia.
