Tyler Ennis Traded to Edmonton Oilers

The Sens make their fourth trade of the day.

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.
