Senators acquire Lapointe
Ottawa has picked up pending UFA Martin Lapointe from the Blackhawks for a sixth-round pick.
Now 34, Lapointe's become a bit of a forgotten man since signing in Chicago coming out of the lockout, but there was a time when he was the most coveted third-line forward in the league after a 27-goal campaign with the Red Wings.
Lapointe will offer depth to the checking lines on the Senators and is a guy who has won multiple Stanley Cups. He hasn't played in the playoffs since skating in seven games with the Bruins in 2004.
