Ottawa Senators

NHL CapHit: $4,550,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Senators have acquired Artem Anisimov from the Blackhawks for Zack Smith.

This trade was all about the Blackhawks clearing cap-space and Anisimov is a middle-6 upgrade over Smith. Anisimov is coming off of a 15-goal, 22-assist season in 2019 and had three straight 20-plus goal seasons but won’t have the same surrounding cast with the Senators.

Artem Anisimov's Jersey
Anisimov demoted to the third line early in training camp.

Anisimov has played almost exclusively with Patrick Kane during his first two years in Chicago, recording 42 goals and 45 assists (87 points) in 141 games. However, so far in training camp, Nick Schmaltz has been skating on the second line with Kane and Anisimov is centering the third line with Patrick Sharp and Ryan Hartman. This affects Anisimov’s upside drastically, but it’s still early in training camp and he could find himself back in his regular role before too long.
