Senators add forward MacEwen on three-year contract

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators have agreed to terms on a three-year, US$2.325 million contract with forward Zack MacEwen.

The deal carries a $775,000 average annual value.

MacEwen, 26, split time between the Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings last season, having been acquired by the Kings ahead of the trade deadline.

The six-foot-three, 205-pound centre had nine points (four goals, five assists) in 46 games for the Flyers and just one assist in 10 games for the Kings.

MacEwen spent his first three seasons in the NHL with the Vancouver Canucks from 2018-2021 after going undrafted.

The Charlottetown native has 28 points (13 goals, 15 assists) in 186 career games.

“Zack’s a player with strong character who adds increased physicality to our lineup,” said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. “He’s a hard-nosed, competitive player who’s a tenacious forechecker and who demonstrates a routine willingness to go to the hard areas.”
