The Senators have placed Zack Smith on waivers.

Smith has three-years left on his contract, that has a modified no-trade clause. Placing him on waivers may be a way around the no-trade, but Smith is one of the better forwards on a bad Senators team and giving him away for nothing seems counterproductive. The 30-year-old had 19 points (5G / 14A) in 68 games a season ago.

The Senators select Brady Tkachuk with the No.4 overall pick.

The brother of Flames’ winger Matthew Tkachuk, Brady had eight goals and 23 assists (31 points) at Boston University this season. Tkachuk elevated his stock during a great World Juniors tournament, where he had nine points (3G / 6A) in seven games. Like his dad Keith, Brady is a big-bodied forward with a great size/skill combo. He will have a chance to make the NHL this fall.

The Senators have acquired Julius Bergman, Mikkel Boedker and a 2020 sixth-round pick from the Sharks for Mike Hoffman, Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round pick.

Bergman was a second-round pick (No.46 overall) in 2014 and just finished his third season in the AHL. The 22-year-old has good size (6-foot-1 / 205 lbs.) and set a career-high in goals (10) but picked up just 10 assists in 65 games with the San Jose Barracuda (AHL) this season. He will likely report to Belleville to start 2019.

The Senators have acquired Mikkel Boedker, Julius Bergman and a 2020 sixth-round pick from the Sharks for Mike Hoffman, Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round pick.

Since signing a four-year, $16.0M deal with the Sharks two years ago, Boedker has recorded just 25 goals and 38 assists (63 points) in 155 games. This comes on the heels of a four-year stretch in which he averaged 20 goals and 32 assists (52 points) per 82 games. Boedker has great speed, but will have an extremely difficult time replacing Hoffman’s production.

The Senators have signed Magnus Paajarvi to a one-year extension worth $900K.

After starting the 2017-18 season with the Blues, Paajarvi was claimed off of waivers by the Senators mid-season and finished with eight points (6G / 2A) in 35 games with Ottawa. Paajarvi figures to be among the Senators’ top-12 forwards when the 2018-19 season rolls around.

The Senators have signed Patrick Sieloff to a two-year, two-way contract extension worth $1.35M ($675K AAV).

Sieloff, 24, had one goal and nine assists (10 points) in 58 games with Belleville (AHL) last season. The former second-round pick (No.42 overall in 2012) has not made a big impact on the NHL level, but he has scored a goal in each of his two NHL games. As a player who has never topped 12 points in an OHL or AHL season, Sieloff likely won’t have any fantasy impact if he ever becomes a full-time NHLer.
