NHL.com @NHL

OTTAWA - Mike Comrie is headed back to the Ottawa Senators and he's bringing a puck-moving defenceman with him.

The Sens acquired Comrie and Chris Campoli from the New York Islanders on Friday in exchange for Dean McAmmond and a first-round draft pick.

Campoli possesses the offensive skill that Ottawa has been seeking for its defence. The 24-year-old had spent his entire career in Long Island and is under contract through next season at a reasonable US$675,000.

Comrie is currently earning $4 million and will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer. He spent a couple months with the Senators in 2007 and was part of the team that reached the Stanley Cup final.

The first-round pick heading to the Islanders originally belonged to San Jose.

McAmmond spent parts of the past three seasons in Ottawa and will join his eighth NHL team. The 35-year-old forward has played 916 regular-season games.
