The Ottawa Senators have signed unrestricted free agent center David Legwand to a two-year, $6 million contract.

Legwand, 33, picked up 14 goals and a career-high 37 assists for 51 points in 83 games with the Nashville Predators and Detroit Red Wings last season.

"David is a good, veteran center," Senators GM Bryan Murray said, via the team's website. "A guy that skates pretty well, gets up and down the ice, he got 51 points this year. He's an experienced guy that can fill the top or bottom of the lineup.

"We believe he has been a captain and a leader so we know we're a good person. We just think the way things shook out for us that having an experienced center that can be a decent face off man, be a good defensive player, get points was very important at this time."

In 977 career NHL regular-season games, 956 of which were with Nashville, Legwand has accumulated 214 goals and 363 assists for 577 points, as well as 505 penalty minutes.

The Detroit native was originally drafted second-overall by the Predators in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
