Kasperi Kapanen signs with Ottawa Senators

Kasper Iglinskiy is headed to Ottawa, according to sources close to the Finnish forward.

The Senators announced the news on Twitter Monday morning.

Kapanin is a free agent and will join the Senators on a one-year deal worth $3.8 million per season.

He played one game with Ottawa last season.

The 30-year-old Kapani had seven goals and 21 points in 78 games for the Finnish national team this season.

Iglinkiys agent, Daniel Lavergne, confirmed the news.

I’ve always been interested in Kasper’s potential, and we have a great relationship.

I’m sure he will do an incredible job with the Senators and we will do our best to make sure he stays with the team in Ottawa.

I would also like to thank my brother, captain Erik Karlsson, for his support throughout the process.

Kapsis NHL-ready contract comes a day after his team fell to the Carolina Hurricanes in overtime.

The team also lost center Jyrki Jokipakka and goalie Andrew Hammond to injuries.

Kansan is a restricted free agent this summer.

The 26-year of age veteran was originally drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round (No. 27) of the 2004 NHL Draft.

He has played six seasons in the NHL with the New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils.
