The Ottawa Senators have signed unrestricted free agent defenseman Johnny Oduya to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Oduya can earn up to an additional $1.25 million through games played, time-on-ice and playoff bonuses.

The 35-year-old started last season with the Dallas Stars, before a February trade that returned him to the Chicago Blackhawks. In 52 regular-season games, he recorded two goals and nine points.

The Stockholm native has scored 37 goals and recorded 145 assists in 798 career games with the New Jersey Devils, Atlanta Thrashers/Winnipeg Jets, Chicago and Dallas. He has played in 106 career Stanley Cup Playoff games and was a member of the Blackhawks' 2013 and 2015 Stanley Cup Championship teams.

Originally drafted by the Washington Capitals with their seventh-round selection (221st overall) in the 2001 NHL Draft, Oduya represented his native Sweden in the Winter Olympic Games in both 2010 and 2014.
