The Ottawa Senators made a few interesting moves during the opening of the free agency period
Heading into the free agency period as “players” for the first time in a few years, the Ottawa Senators have remained relatively quiet on the market, making one trade and a few minor free-agent signings.
Senators trade Evgenii Dadonov
It appeared evident that Pierre Dorion wanted to get rid of the remaining $10 million dollars on Dadonov’s contract and he was able to fetch a solid return in defenceman Nick Holden plus a 3rd round pick.
