The Ottawa Senators have traded forward Vladimir Tarasenko to his preferred destination of the Florida Panthers.

According to insider Andy Strickland two draft picks will be coming back to Ottawa in exchange for Tarasenko.


Tarasenko signed with the Senators this past offseason on a one-year, $5M deal. He will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.


The 32 year old Tarasenko, has scored 17 goals and 41 points in 57 games this season while averaging 16:03 in ice time, his lowest usage in 10 years.

Tarasenko was a member of the 2019 Stanley Cup-winning Blues and will look to go on a deep run with the Panthers who made it to the Stanley Cup final last season before falling short to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Update:

Ottawa retains 50 percent on Tarasenko in the trade with Florida.
Going to Ottawa from Florida:
2024 4th RD pick (which becomes 2026 3rd RD pick if Panthers win Cup)
2025 3rd Rd pick
