The Senators have acquired Erik Brannstrom, Oscar Lindberg and a 2020 second-round pick from the Golden Knights for Mark Stone.

Brannstrom has become one of the NHL’s top prospects since being selected No.15 overall in the 2017 NHL Draft. Brannstrom is a talented offensive-defenseman, who has been compared to former Senators’ defenseman Erik Karlsson.

The Golden Knights make Erik Brannstrom the 15th overall pick.

Brannstrom is a bit undersized (5-foot-10/179 lbs.) for an NHL defenseman, but he was a solid two-way D-man for HV71 this season. He posted six points (1G / 5A) in 35 games this season and projects as a strong puck-moving defenseman who will need to try an add some bulk to fit into the NHL.
