Senators buy at NHL trade deadline, acquire Hemsky from Oilers for picks

OTTAWA - The Senators are four points out of a playoff spot and seem to be buyers at the trade deadline.

Ottawa acquired winger Ales Hemsky from the Edmonton Oilers three hours before Wednesday's NHL trade deadline for a third-round pick in this year's draft and a fifth-rounder in 2015.

Senators general manager Bryan Murray said last week he was more interested in trading for a forward with some time left on his contract rather than a rental. Hemsky, 30, is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Oilers GM Craig MacTavish had been shopping Hemsky dating to this past off-season but could not find a taker until Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
