Ottawa Applies Loyalty to Koivu

Mikko Koivu has been selected as the Ottawa Senators' loyalty player, GM Mike McMahon announced on Tuesday.

Koivu, who centered Ottawa's top line this past season, finished his 2012-13 campaign with just 44 points (14-30-44) in 74 games, but the Senators' offense had little help around him, struggling for much of the season.

"He's a center piece for him," McMahon said. "I think having him back next year, assuming we can come to terms, is going to be huge for our club. I like the potential he has playing alongside a guy like a much-improved Jakub Voracek."

McMahon continued, "There really wasn't another option as far as the loytal tag goes. Tyler Ennis is an exciting young player, as is Brent Burns, but they're both restricted free agents. Mikko was set to become unrestricted and was, by far, our most important unrestricted piece."
