Senators pull another post-deadline trade!

The second one today in Ottawa.



Earlier today, the Ottawa Senators acquired forward Wyatt Bongiovann from the Winnipeg Jets in return for future considerations.

This is technically an AHL trade / loan as today’s reportedly the deadline for a player on an AHL roster is eligible to be traded or loaned within the league.

Hence, a second move was done today by Ottawa. The Senators have just young forward Jamieson Rees from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange of a sixth round pick in this summer’s NHL Draft.

Rees was selected in the second round, 44th overall by the Hurricanes in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
For his first season with the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League, Rees a recorded just a single assist in seven games.

This is from the statement made by the Hurricanes via

“Rees, 23, has registered four points (0g, 4a) in 37 AHL games with Springfield and Charlotte this season. He has recorded 84 points (29g, 55a) in 192 career AHL games with Springfield, Charlotte, and the Chicago Wolves. The Hamilton, Ont., native was drafted by the Hurricanes in the second round, 44th overall, of the 2019 NHL Draft.”

Earlier today, the Senators acquired Bongiovanni from Winnipeg. He has yet to play in the NHL ever since he signed an entry-level contract of two years right out of college as an undrafted player in April, 2022.

Since, the 24 year old forward has been playing in the American Hockey League, for the Manitoba Moose. This season, he has tallied eight goals and added seven assists for 15 points in 34 games.
