Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - The Ottawa Senators signed defenceman David Hale and forward Francis Lessard to one-year, two-way contracts on Wednesday.

Hale spent last season with the Tampa Bay Lightning, collecting four assists in 39 games. Over his six-year NHL career with the Devils, Flames, Coyotes and Bolts, the Colorado Springs native has tallied three times with 24 points in 302 contests.

Lessard has primarily been a career minor-leaguer. In 2009-10, he spent 61 games with the San Antonio Rampage, picking up two goals and four points with 289 penalty minutes.

His last appearance in the NHL came with Atlanta in 2005-06, a six-game stint where he did not record a point. The former 1997 draft pick of Carolina played in 91 games from 2001-06 with the Thrashers, picking up a goal and four points with 268 penalty minutes.
