Last season, Kelly had two goals in 11 games. He was limited to only 11 games after fracturing his femur. Prior to that, Kelly had 28 points (7-21) in 80 games during the 2014-15 Bruins campaign.
Kelly returns to a Senators team seeking a chance at going back to the playoffs after missing in 2015-16. The 900K contract is a bargain for a player, who if healthy, could replicate his 2014-15 efforts with Boston.
