The Ottawa Senators have signed tough guy Zenon Konopka to a one-year contract worth $700,000.

Konopka spent last season with the New York Islanders and finished second in the league in fighting majors with 25, which made up a good portion of his 307 penalty minutes.

Prior to joining the Islanders, the native of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., spent the two previous seasons with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He registered two goals and three assists while skating in 74 games in 2009-10 and led the NHL with 265 penalty minutes that season.

Undrafted, Konopka made his NHL debut with the then Mighty Ducks of Anaheim during the 2005-06 season. He also played parts of two seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets before signing with the Lightning. In 195 NHL contests, Konopka has registered eight goals, 14 assists and 684 penalty minutes.
