Guillaume Latendresse joins Senators

Guillaume Latendresse is now a member of the Ottawa Senators.
Latendresse has scored 81 goals and 56 assists in 314 career games with the Montreal Canadiens and Minnesota Wild, but has been plagued with concussion problems over the past few seasons. Latendresse, who will make $1.2 million next season, is 6-2 and 230 pounds and there was hope that he might become a great French-Canadian star after being drafted by the Canadiens.
Earlier Saturday, the Senators signed defenceman Mike Lundin, a stay at home type who played also played with Minnesota last season. Lundin played only 17 games last season, but played 69 games with Tampa Bay in 2010-11, scoring one goal and 10 assists.
The Senators have also stocked the farm system by signing veteran defenceman Andre Benoit. Benoit, who spent last season in the Kontinental Hockey League, is expected to play with Binghamton of the AHL next season.
In housekeeping news, Shane Prince was signed to an entry level contract. Prince is also expected to play with Binghamton in 2012-13.
