Atlantic Division team acquires former second-rounder from Carolina

While the NHL's trade deadline has already passed, there were still opportunities for deals to be commenced this week. The American Hockey League's trade deadline was set for today at 3 p.m. ET and there was plenty of action.

The Ottawa Senators and Carolina Hurricanes came together just before the deadline to complete what was probably the most noteworthy trade of the past week.

In a post on social media, the Senators' Communications account announced that the team has added 23-year-old forward Jamieson Rees from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a sixth-round pick int he 2024 NHL Entry Draft.

"Roster update: The #Sens have acquired forward Jamieson Rees from @Canes in exchange for their sixth-round draft pick in 2024."

Rees, as the Senators said after the deal was announced, will report to the American Hockey League's Belleville Senators where he's expected to make his debut on Saturday against the Bridgeport Islanders.

"Upon completion of the transaction, Rees has been assigned to @BellevilleSens and is expected to make his B-Sens debut on Saturday vs @AHLIslanders."

Rees, a native of Hamilton, Ontario, was selected in the second round, 44th overall, by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. He's currently in the final year of his three-year, entry-level contract and will be a restricted free agent this summer.

In 37 games this season between the AHL's Springfield Thunderbirds and Charlotte Checkers, Rees has four assists, 18 penalty minutes and is a minus-three.
