Former Bruins defenseman Denis Seidenberg has caught the attention of at least one NHL team.

His performance at the World Cup has been very good.

The Boston Bruins made a difficult decision this summer, parting ways with veteran defenseman Dennis Seidenberg by way of buying out the final years of his contract and somewhat surprisingly he has yet to find his way onto a new National Hockey League team.

However we now have a report from one of the best insiders in the business, TSN's Darren Dreger, and in it Dreger claims that the Ottawa Senators now have interest in Seidenberg, likely largely due to how effective he has been as a member of Team Europe in the World Cup of Hockey.

Dreger believes that the first team to make a competitive offer may be the player to snatch up Seidenberg, although it's unclear if he is currently talking NHL contracts during the tournament. Several players have already expressed a desire to leave NHL contract talks on the sidelines during the World Cup, most notably Flames star Johnny Gaudreau, and it's possible Seidenberg is using a similar approach.

Nagging injuries have significantly limited his play in recent years, but he has seemingly shown no signs of those effects during the tournament, and if he can remain healthy he could be a steal for one of the many teams rumored to be in need of defense.
