The Ottawa Senators continue to be the trade market’s top sellers today, trading Tyler Ennis to the Edmonton Oilers. In return they receive a 5th round pick in 2021.

Ennis was signed as a free agent in July after playing for D.J. Smith in Toronto the previous season. As a skilled bottom-six forward, he’s helped the team at both ends of the ice, scoring 14 goals and 33 points in 61 games, his highest total since 2014-15.

At 30 years old, Ennis was also frequently paired with Colin White, helping him overcome some early-season struggles. He’ll be a key addition for the Oilers, who have already added another speedy winger today in Andreas Athanasiou with hopes of a deep playoff run. Ennis’ cheap $800,000 cap hit certainly helped with the trade attraction.

The Senators now own nine draft picks in the 2021 NHL draft.
