OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today the club has re-signed forward Bobby Butler to a two-year contract.

In 36 games with Ottawa, Butler recorded 21 points (10 goals, 11 assists) and 10 penalty minutes. He was recalled to the Senators on five occasions this past season and remained with the team from Feb. 14 through the end of the regular schedule.

A native of Marlborough, Mass., Butler played in each of the B-Sens’ 23 post-season contests and ranked second among Binghamton players with 13 goals while finishing in a tie for sixth in team post-season scoring with 17 points in helping the B-Sens capture their first Calder Cup. He appeared in 47 regular season contests for Binghamton, registering 33 points (22 goals, 11 assists) and 35 penatly minutes while finishing second among team rookies in scoring.
