The Ottawa Senators inked minor-league goaltender Mike McKenna and depth centre Paul Carey to one-year, two-way contracts on Sunday.

McKenna, 35, appeared in two games with the Dallas Stars last season, posting a 2.97 goals-against average with a .900 save percentage. The St. Louis, Mo., native also won 17 games while posting a 2.64 goals-against average for their AHL affiliate, the Texas Stars, leading them to an appearance in the Calder Cup Final.

McKenna’s deal is worth US$700,000 in the NHL and $175,000 in the AHL.

This is McKenna’s second stint in the Senators’ organization after playing one season with the AHL’s Binghamton Senators in 2011-12.

In total, he has appeared in 24 NHL games with Tampa Bay, New Jersey, Columbus, Arizona and Dallas and 461 regular-season AHL games over 13 seasons.

Carey, 29, put up seven goals and added seven assists in 60 games for the New York Rangers last season.

His contract will carry an annual value of $700,000 in the NHL and $350,000 in the AHL.

The six-foot-one, 200-pound centre, who is a native of Boston, has also spent time with Colorado and Washington.
