OTTAWA - As the NHL prepares to take a break for the July 4 holiday weekend, the Senators are still hard at working putting together their roster for next year.
While the Senators got another piece in place Thursday by signing defenceman Aaron Johnson to a one-year, two-way contract, GM Bryan Murray along with assistants Pierre Dorion and Randy Lee aren't done making changes.
After sending captain Jason Spezza to the Dallas Stars for winger Alex Chiasson and re-signing Milan Michalek to a three-year deal, the Senators are studying all their options for help up front.
The Senators also signed forward David Dziuryznski, who spent all of last year in Binghamton, to a two-year, two-way contract Thursday. It locks up another player who has an important role in Binghamton.
