The Ottawa Senators have traded forward Mark Stone to the Vegas Golden Knights for Erik Brannstrom, Oscar Lindberg and a 2020 2nd round pick (Dallas).

The 26-year old Stone was drafted 178th overall in the 6th round of the 2010 draft by the Ottawa Senators.

The 19-year old Brannstrom was drafted 15th overall in the 2017 draft by the Vegas Golden Knights.

The 27-year old Lindberg was drafted 57th overall in the 2010 draft by the Phoenix Coyotes.
 

Bob McKenzie: Stone’s AAV on an eight-year deal with VGK is $9.5M.

Pierre LeBrun: “I believe he can’t officially sign it until March 1”

Thoughts from the media

Bob McKenzie: “Extension being worked on, pretty obvious that one is coming since there appears to be no conditional picks in the deal from OTT to VGK.”

Jonathan Davis: “Good job by McPhee. Traded prospects for a potential parade. Brannstrom can be a top pairing d-man down the road but worth it for Vegas. Vegas did not have to yield a first”

Chris Peters: “Erik Brannstrom is a special talent who has continued to take positive steps forward in his first season in North America. Vegas has now traded away two of its three first-rounders from its first ever entry draft. Their stockpiling of assets landed them some big fish.”

Scott Wheeler: “Erik Brannstrom is really, really good. He and Chabot at 1LD and 2LD could be electric for the Sens.”

Ryan Kennedy: “Erik Brannstrom is a fantastic rushing defenseman – literally looks like a center the way he handles the puck”

Brian Costello: “Ottawa-bound prospect Brannstrom was No. 24 in Future Watch last year, and sure to be in top 12 this year.”

AJ Haefele: “A future blueline with Chabot and Brannstrom? Holy smokes that’s going to be fun to watch”
