OTTAWA — The Ottawa Senators have signed goaltender Chris Driedger to a one-year, two-way contract.
The deal is worth US$735,000 at the NHL level and $70,000 in the American Hockey League.
The 23-year-old Driedger spent the majority of last season with AHL's Binghamton Senators, posting a 12-19-1 record with a 3.22 goals-against average, .900 save percentage and one shutout in 34 games. He also made one appearance with Ottawa and two with Wichita of the ECHL.
Selected by the Senators in the third-round (76th overall) in the 2012 NHL draft, the six-foot-four, 204-pound netminder has appeared in 82 career AHL games since making his professional debut in 2013-14, posting a 36-34-6 record with two career shutouts.
