July 14, 2022

The Ottawa Senators announced on Wednesday that the team had signed forward Scott Sabourin to a one-year, two-way National Hockey League contract extension worth an average annual value (AAV) of $750K and $375,000 in the American Hockey League.

Sabourin 29, skated in 40 games last season with the Belleville Senators, collecting 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) and 75 penalty minutes. The physical forward also saw time in the Nation’s Capital dressing in seven games for the NHL Senators, adding two assists.

“He’s very well thought of in the organization, and even with me, coming in from an outsiders perspective, I have a lot of respect for the way he plays and the job he does from a leadership standpoint,” said Belleville Sens General Manager Ryan Bowness. “He’s also very defensively responsible and was a big piece of our leadership corps that we wanted to get locked up.”

The Ottawa, Ontario native boasts an extensive AHL resume having appeared in 354 career games with the Manchester Monarchs, Iowa Wild, Ontario Reign, San Diego Gulls, Stockton Heat, Toronto Marlies, and Belleville, in which he has recorded 44 goals, 52 assists and 743 penalty minutes. Sabourin has played in 43 career games at the NHL level between Ottawa and the Toronto Maple Leafs, recording two goals, six assists and 49 penalty minutes.
