Senators sign Ryan Shannon to one-year deal

Shannon's size will always be an issue, but when he plays with fast wingers (like recent linemate Peter Regin) he creates countless chances with his speed. If he was signed to a low-cost deal it's a good depth signing for the Senators.

Shannon was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
