Senators sign tough guy forward Konopka

The Ottawa Senators added some muscle by signing tough guy Zenon

Konopka to a one-year deal.

The 30-year-old center spent last season with the New York

Islanders, registering two goals, seven assists and a league-high

307 penalty minutes.

Konopka also ranked fourth in the NHL with a 57.7 per cent

faceoff success rate.

He has played 195 career games with Anaheim, Columbus, Tampa Bay

and the Islanders and scored eight goals, with 14 assists and 684

penalty minutes.

Konopka spent his entire junior career with the Ontario Hockey

League’s Ottawa 67’s.
