The Blue Jackets have acquired Matt Duchene and Julius Bergman from the Senators for Vitali Abramov, Jonathan Davidsson, a 2019 first-round pick and a conditional 2020 first-round pick.
Duchene is expected to walk across the hall and make his Blue Jackets debut tonight in Ottawa.

Despite playing for a mostly poor Senators team, Duchene is on-pace to set a new career-high in goals (39) and points (84). The 2019 first-round pick is lottery protected and the Senators will only receive the 2020 pick if Duchene re-signs in Columbus.
