GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Phoenix Coyotes acquired Brian McGrattan from the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday, trading a fifth-round pick in the 2009 NHL draft for the right winger.

The 26-year-old recorded three assists and 46 penalty minutes in 38 games with the Senators last season. He's played with Ottawa since the 2005-06 season, when he set career highs by making two goals and three assists in 60 games.

McGrattan appeared in 196 games with AHL Binghamton from 2002-05.

The native of Hamilton, Ontario, was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the fourth round of the 1999 draft.
