Report: Stone, Duchene, Dzingel scratched ahead of trade deadline

Report: Stone, Duchene, Dzingel scratched ahead of trade deadline Ottawa Senators forwards Mark Stone, Matt Duchene, and Ryan Dzingel are scratched Thursday against the New Jersey Devils for precautionary reasons, TSN's Darren Dreger reports. 

Dzingel put up a solid first full season this year, registering 32 points and contributing in all situations. His speed and secondary scoring touch are a solid He’s already 25, which means this contract takes him right to unrestricted free agency, but the Senators could keep the price down by not buying out

While Mark Stone and Matt Duchene have garnered the majority of the attention among Ottawa’s pending unrestricted free agents, Ryan Dzingel’s situation is certainly worth monitoring as well.  The 26-year-old is in the midst of a career year and already has 20 goals and 21 assists in 53 games this season. His future with the Senators appears to be dependent upon what happens with Stone and Duchene, but as Postmedia’s Bruce Garrioch notes, the asking price appears to be quite high, coming in between $5.5 million and $6 million a year on a long-term deal. Even though Dzingel has a chance to reach 30 goals this season, that price tag may very well be too rich for the Senators, which should increase his odds of being dealt by the Feb. 25 trade deadline.

Report: Sens put Stone, Dzingel on trade block

Report: Sens put Stone, Dzingel on trade block The Ottawa Senators appear to be readying for a possible fire sale ahead of Monday's trade deadline. After holding them out from the team's 4-0 blowout loss to the New Jersey Devils on Thursday, the Senators made right winger Mark Stone and center Ryan Dzingel available for trade, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. Center Matt Duchene - previously believed to be on the trade block - was also scratched from Thursday's contest. Stone, Duchene, and Dzingel are the Senators' three highest-scoring forwards with 62, 58, and 44 points, respectively. All three are scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency this summer.

Though defensemen may now have a price set thanks to the Toronto Maple Leafs’ acquisition of Minnesota is another team that entered the season with high expectations and are still searching for Matt Duchene, Mark Stone and Ryan Dzingel are all scheduled to become unrestricted free agents at Both players are undeniable talents, but may just be too pricey for the Senators to keep around.

More from the Atlantic:

  • Canadiens winger Charles Hudon was expected to play on Saturday night but was a late scratch, which fueled some trade speculation. To that end, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman notes (video link) that Montreal has been looking for a mid-round pick for the 24-year-old. Last season, Hudon put up a respectable 30 points in 72 games but has had difficulties staying in the lineup in 2018-19 and has been quiet when he has played as he has just three goals and two assists in 30 contests this season. He’s earning the league minimum salary of $650K this season and will be eligible for salary arbitration in the summer.
  • The Maple Leafs announced (Twitter link) that they have activated winger Tyler Ennis off injured reserve. He has been out since late December after sustaining a broken ankle. The 29-year-old had gotten off to a decent start with Toronto with 11 points in 33 games before the injury while holding his own on the top line at times. No corresponding roster move needed to be made as the Leafs had an open roster spot after waiving and demoting Martin Marincin last weekend.

Senators forward Duchene ignores trade talk.
TORONTO - Every time Matt Duchene enters an NHL arena, he leaves all the trade talk buzzing around him at the door. The 28-year-old Senators forward has been the subject of trade speculation as Ottawa embraces a rebuild that would be accelerated by moving Duchene, Ryan Dzingel or Mark Stone before the Feb. 25 trade deadline. But Duchene, who was traded to the Senators by the Colorado Avalanche during the 2017-18 season, finds it easy to keep the trade talk off his radar.
