OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators have re-signed forward Morgan Klimchuk to a one-year, two-way contract.
The deal is worth US$700,000 in the NHL and $85,000 in the American Hockey League.
The 24-year-old Regina native was acquired in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 11.
Klimchuk had four goals and one assist in eight games with AHL Belleville before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.
Klimchuk was a first-round pick (28th overall) by the Calgary Flames in 2013.
