The Senators are "trying hard to add a forward," Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman wrote in his "31 Thoughts" column Wednesday.

Two of the club's top three centers recently went down with injuries: Colin White will miss three-to-five weeks with a hip flexor and Artem Anisimov is out one-to-two weeks with a lower-body ailment.

Senators general manager Pierre Dorion has already shown a willingness to make moves early in the season, acquiring forward Vladislav Namestnikov from the New York Rangers earlier in October in exchange for a fourth-round pick and defenseman Nick Ebert.

It's rare that teams look to trade away players so early in the season, but Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nic Petan is one individual reportedly on the trade block.
