Guillaume Latendresse and Mike Lundin will be looking for fresh starts far away from Minnesota.

The pair became ex-members of the Minnesota Wild on Sunday when they signed with the Ottawa Senators on the opening day of the NHL's free-agency signing period.

Latendresse, an oft-injured forward, signed a $1.25 million, one-year deal.

He played 27 games combined over the past two seasons with the Wild, scoring eight goals and 15 points. Latendresse missed 50 games because of a concussion last season.

Latendresse is a former second-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens and spent parts of four seasons with the team.

Ottawa also signed Lundin to a one-year deal.

Lundin, a Twin Cities native, had two assists in 17 games during an injury-plagued season with the Wild that saw him miss 48 games. The defenseman had played for Tampa Bay before joining the Wild in 2011-12.
