Now that Brady Tkachuk has re-signed with the Ottawa Senators, NHL Rumors are making their rounds that the Sens are looking to trade for a top nine forward.
Chris Johnston was on TSN’s Insider Trading and reports, the Sens would like some help down the middle. They would even take some help down the wing if that’s what it takes to get this done. They’re looking to add a player to their top nine that can produce a little offensively and help out their group in that regard.
Johnston went on to say, as for what they might give up? They have 11 draft picks in the upcoming draft, plus some prospects, so GM Pierre Dorian is open, and shopping, trying to add to his team.
The Senators would like to make a playoff push this year with the young talent they have and get some playoff experience underneath them and they will use the plethora of picks and prospects to add to the team.
It was reported earlier this offseason that Ottawa had interest in Chicago Blackhawks forward Dylan Strome.
