The Ottawa Senators agreed to terms with center David Legwand on a two-year contract Friday. Aaron Ward of TSN reported the terms as being two years, $6 million.

Legwand split last season between the Nashville Predators and the Red Wings. He had 51 points (14 goals, 37 assists) in 83 games.

The Detroit native played the first 15 seasons of his NHL career with Nashville before a March 5 trade sent him to the Red Wings. He had not been expected to re-sign with Detroit.

He has 577 points in 977 games.

The Senators also re-signed defenseman Eric Gryba to a two-year deal. Gryba had 11 points in 57 games last season.
