Stephane Da Costa is sticking around for at least one more season with the Ottawa Senators organization.

Da Costa’s agent Wade Arnott confirmed Friday that the centre has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Senators. Further details weren’t immediately available.

The diminutive forward was surrounded by hype when he arrived on the National Hockey League scene late in the 2011 season. Reports had as many as 15-20 teams interested in inking the Merrimack College standout but the opportunity to quickly move up on a rebuilding squad turned out to be irresistible.

Although he was once seen as a potential second-line centre here the 24-year-old Da Costa has been shuttling back and forth between the big club and the American Hockey League’s Binghamton Senators while trying to adjust to the pro game. The Senators eventually filled that No. 2 role by trading for Kyle Turris and youngsters like Mika Zibanejad and Jean-Gabriel Pageau have since passed Da Costa on the depth chart.
