The Senators have acquired Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown and Michael Carcone from the Maple Leafs for Cody Ceci, Ben Harpur, Aaron Luchuk and a 2020 third-round pick.
The Maple Leafs needed to clear some more cap space and Zaitsev was a prime candidate to be moved. The right-handed defenseman has five years left on his deal that carries a $4.5M cap-hit. Zaitsev had a solid first season in the NHL but struggled in each of the last two seasons. He showed during his days in the KHL that he has some offensive ability and maybe he will find that while playing in Ottawa’s top-4.
