The Ottawa Senators have acquired Ian Cole from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

This somehow turned into a three-way trade between the Penguins, Senators and Golden Knights, with Vegas retaining 40 percent of Derick Brassard's cap hit. Cole probably shouldn't get too comfortable in Ottawa because the pending unrestricted free agent will likely be on the move before Monday's trade deadline. The 29-year-old has three goals and 13 points in 47 games this season. Ottawa is also getting a first-round pick in 2018, a third-round pick in 2019 and prospect Filip Gustavsson all from Pittsburgh.

The Ottawa Senators have acquired Filip Gustavsson from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

This deal appeared to be done this afternoon, but it hit a snag. Now, it's officially completed. The Senators are sending Derick Brassard, Vincent Dunn and a third-round pick in 2018 to the Penguins for Gustavsson, a 2018 first-round, a 2019 third-rounder and Ian Cole. Gustavsson was named the top goaltender at the 2018 World Junior Hockey Championship. The 19-year-old has 8-9-0 record with a 2.16 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage with Lulea HF in the Swedish League. The Vegas Golden Knights are also involved in the deal, as they'll eat up 40 percent of Derick Brassard's cap hit.

Filip Gustavsson's rights belong to the Pittsburgh Penguins for now.

Pittsburgh's trade with Ottawa is on hold, while the teams reportedly try to rework a third club into the move. If and or when the transaction takes place, Gustavsson would be a solid prospect in the pipeline for the Senators.

Ian Cole is still a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins for now.

The Penguins still have to rework a trade that would get them Derick Brassard from Ottawa. Cole is listed as healthy scratch for Pittsburgh against Carolina on Friday night.

The Ottawa Senators have acquired Filip Gustavsson, Ian Cole, and a 2018 first-round pick from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Derick Brassard.

The Senators are getting a nice return for Brassard. Obviously the first-round pick is the potential highlight of this deal, but Gustavsson is a great prospect too. He has a 2.16 GAA and .917 save percentage in 18 Swedish league games this season. Pittsburgh took him with the 55th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

The Ottawa Senators have acquired Ian Cole from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Cole was part of the Derick Brassard trade. He might not want to get too comfortable because if the Senators can manage it, they will probably flip him before the trade deadline. For Pittsburgh, the inclusion of Cole was likely a cap consideration as he comes with a $2.1 million annual hit. Cole would still look good as a third-pairing defenseman on another team though.

Mark Stone posted two assists in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

Stone has been on a roll since he returned from injury. He has one goal and 10 points in his last seven contests. That includes a four-game point streak. Stone has amassed 54 points in 51 appearances this year.
Feb 23 - 10:38 AM

Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 24 shots as the Ottawa Senators lost 4-3 to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.

Anderson allowed four goals on 18 shots in the first two periods and did not look very sharp, allowing three straight goals once the Senators had tied it up at one. He drops to 17-19-5 with a 3.23 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage. He has now dropped two straight contests for the Senators.
Feb 22 - 10:40 PM

Fredrik Claesson will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He has one goal, five points and a minus-5 rating in 43 games this season. Max McCormick will also watch the game from the press box, while Alexander Burrows continues to serve his 10-game suspension.

Bobby Ryan (finger) is good to return on Thursday.

It will be Ryan's first game since Feb. 1. He has seven goals and 20 points in 39 contests this season. Get him back in your lineup if you have him.
Feb 22 - 5:37 PM

Craig Anderson will be the Senators' starter on Thursday.

Anderson will attempt to bounce back after surrendering five goals on 41 shots. He has a 17-18-5 record, 3.21 GAA, and .903 save percentage in 44 contests this season.

Mark Stone earned a pair of assists in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago.

Stone had a hand in goals by Zack Smith and Matt Duchene in the defeat. He leads the Senators in scoring with 19 goals and 52 points in 50 games this season. Stone has collected eight points, including seven helpers, in six outings since he returned from injury on Feb. 10.
Feb 22 - 10:56 AM

Mike Condon allowed two goals on 38 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

He also gave up three goals on Chicago's seven shootout attempts. Condon has now dropped four consecutive decisions. He owns a 4-10-5 record with a 3.31 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season. Condon shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar. He'll continue to serve as Craig Anderson's backup goalie.
Feb 21 - 11:19 PM

Matt Duchene found the back of the net in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Duchene's goal at the 12:01 mark of the second period tied the game two. The Sens forward also converted on his shootout attempt, but Chicago's Nick Schmaltz eventually won the game in the seventh round of the shootout. Duchene finished the game with a minus-1 rating, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in 20:49 of ice time. He's up to 16 goals and 37 points in 58 games. 11 of those points have come in his last eight games. Zack Smith also scored for the Senators in the loss.
Feb 21 - 11:11 PM

Ben Harpur will be a healthy scratch in Wednesday's game against Chicago.

He has one assist in 22 games this season. This will be the second straight game that he'll watch from the press box. Alexander Burrows will miss the game because of his suspension.
