The Ottawa Senators have bolstered their blue line with the addition of Justin Falk.
The 30-year-old defenceman signed a one-year, two-way deal with the club on Friday and will be available to play on Saturday when the Senators play host to the San Jose Sharks.
The deal pays Falk a pro-rated US$650,000 in the NHL and $185,000 in the AHL.
This season, the native of Snowflake, Man., went to camp with the Calgary Flames before signing a professional tryout contract with the AHL’s Colorado Eagles, where he played eight games.
