Senators re-sign Mathieu Joseph to 4-year deal
Joseph was a restricted free agent who the Senators acquired from the Tampa Bay Lightning along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for Nick Paul in March.
The 25-year-old played well offensively after joining the Sens, collecting four goals and eight assists in 11 games. Joseph's average ice time increased by over three minutes with Ottawa compared to his 2021-22 rate with the Lightning.
The winger known primarily for his defense produced 12 goals and 18 assists across 69 contests this past season.
Joseph spent the better part of four campaigns with the Lightning, who drafted him 120th overall in 2015.
His brother is Pierre-Olivier Joseph, a defenseman and 2017 first-round pick who's in the Pittsburgh Penguins organization.
