Rangers trade Vladislav Namestnikov to Senators

Rangers trade Vladislav Namestnikov to Senators”

After just two games into the regular season, the Ottawa Senators have acquired Vladislav Namestnikov in exchange for defenceman Nick Ebert and a fourth-round pick in 2021.

Namestnikov, entering his third season in NY, appeared in both of the Rangers' wins this season. Namestnikov, 26, is in the final season of a two-year, $8 million contract.

Incidentally, this was the season Namestnikov averaged the most time on the ice in his entire National Hockey League career; 17:30 in 62 games with Tampa and 15:43 in 19 with NY, averaging 17:05 in total.

A former first-round draft pick, Namestnikov came to the Rangers in the 2018 trade deadline deal that sent Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller to the Lightning.

Two games into a regular season in which the Senators were expected to be bad seems like a weird time to make a trade, but here is what we know about the deal. The Blue Shirts will also retain $750,000 of Namestnikov's $4,000,000 cap hit. He played in 49 games with Orebro of the Swedish Hockey League last season, with 11 goals and 22 assists.

Ebert was a seventh-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings in 2012. Among SHL defensemen, he ranked third in goals, fourth in points and fifth in assists.

The Rangers now have nine picks in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.
