Rangers trade Vladislav Namestnikov to Senators

Senators acquire Namestnikov from Rangers

On Tuesday night, the Ottawa Senators pulled the trigger on a deal, sending a fourth-round pick in 2021 and depth defenceman Nick Ebert to the New York Rangers for Vladislav Namestnikov.

The Ottawa Senators have been busy today, after dropping the first two games of the season in less than stellar fashion. As part of the deal, the Rangers have agreed to retain 18.75 percent of the soon-to-be 27-year-old's salary ($750,000).

The six-foot, 183-pound Namestnikov was Tampa Bay's first-round selection (27th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft, and was traded to NY at the 2018 trade deadline as part of a five-player trade that sent veteran defenceman Ryan McDonagh and forward J.T. Miller to the Lightning.

Namestnikov's best season occurred, ironically, during the. Namestnikov, 26, is in the final season of a two-year, $8 million contract.

Namestnikov, entering his third season in NY, appeared in both of the Rangers' wins this season. He played in 49 games with Orebro of the Swedish Hockey League last season, with 11 goals and 22 assists.

In exchange for the journeyman minor leaguer, as well as a fourth-round pick in 2021, the Senators receive a player with 362 National Hockey League regular-season games under his belt. He initially signed a one-year, two-way deal during the offseason but has yet to crack an NHL roster after he was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 NHL Draft.
