The Ottawa Senators have signed defenseman Nick Holden to a one-year contract extension worth $1.3 million, the team announced Thursday.

"Nick has seamlessly integrated himself into our lineup and into our dressing room," general manager Pierre Dorion said in a statement. "His veteran presence and leadership qualities have been instrumental in helping our young group this season, while his strong defensive play and accountability on the ice has really helped with the maturity of our young defensive core."

The Senators acquired Holden from the Vegas Golden Knights this past summer in a trade that sent Evgenii Dadonov to Vegas.

The 34-year-old has played 543 NHL games split between the Columbus Blue Jackets, Colorado Avalanche, New York Rangers, Boston Bruins, Golden Knights, and Senators.

Holden's notched four points in 30 games this season while averaging over 19 minutes per contest.
