The Binghamton Senators have signed right winger Todd Bertuzzi to a professional tryout contract.

The Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch is reporting that Bertuzzi's deal is a 25-game pro tryout.

Bertuzzi is scheduled to report to Binghamton on Monday.

Binghamton is the AHL affiliate of the Ottawa Senators.

There were reported discussions earlier in the week between Bertuzzi and the Senators.

Bertuzzi, who turns 40 on Feb. 2, is an unrestricted free agent. The winger skated in 59 games last season for the Detroit Red Wings and had nine goals and seven assists.

The veteran of 18 NHL seasons has played for the New York Islanders, Vancouver, Florida, Anaheim and Calgary and has had two stints in Detroit. His best season came in 2002-03 with Vancouver when he had 46 goals and 51 assists.
