Portland overage defenceman on verge of signing with NHL club.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie reported Wednesday that the Senators are on the verge of signing overage junior defenceman Troy Rutkowski to an entry-level contract. Rutkowski, who has played five seasons with Portland, has 20 goals and 41 assists in 69 games with Portland this season.
Rutkowski was originally drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the fifth round (157th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but never signed with Colorado, making him a free agent.
