(UPDATE 6:42 PM)- Another key player with the Binghamton Senators has found work elsewhere. Cody Bass has signed a one year, two way contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Bass was well liked by his teammates in Binghamton and he will certainly be missed. Good luck in Columbus, Cody!
(UPDATE 3:49 PM)- Busy day for the Sens as they have now signed defenceman Tim Conboy. Conboy spent last season with the Portland Pirates of the AHL and has 59 games of NHL experience with the Carolina Hurricanes.
(UPDATE 10:37 AM)- The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Mark Parrish to a one year/two way contract. With all the changes in Binghamton, this move should provide some veteran depth for the AHL team.
The Ottawa Senators have taken care of some of their RFA business, signing forward Erik Condra to a two year deal. The contract is a one way deal meaning that the club expects Condra to be a regular with the big club next season.
(UPDATE 1:03 PM)- Sens GM Bryan Murray has made a minor splash in the free agent market, signing tough guy and former Ottawa 67 Zenon Konopka to a one year, one way deal. The contract pays Konopka $700,000 next season. He is a hard working guy that was great on faceoffs last year. Make the Sens bottom six a little more crowded but a solid pick up.
(UPDATE 7:20 PM)- First it was Ryan Potulny, now another star from the Binghamton Senators Calder Cup winning team is headed elsewhere. The Edmonton Oilers/Oklahoma City Barons have signed BSens Captain Ryan Keller to a contract. All the best to Ryan in Edmonton!

As expected, Day One of Free Agency was quiet for the Ottawa Senators.
Goalies were being scooped up at a rapid pace and in the end the Sens ended up inking a familiar face to play the role of back up to Craig Anderson next season.
(UPDATE 5:36PM)- The Sens are bringing back tough guy Francis Lessard. He has signed a one year, two way contract. Hard working guy that will serve as the enforcer down in Bingo.
