OTTAWA (AP) - The dismantling of the disappointing Ottawa Senators took another step when defenseman Chris Campoli was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks for forward Ryan Potulny and a second-round pick in this year's draft.
The deal was completed Monday shortly before the NHL trade deadline.
Campoli has three goals and 11 assists this season, and 32 goals and 96 assists in 378 NHL games with Ottawa and the New York Islanders.
He is the sixth regular player in the Senators lineup to be traded in the past three weeks. Alex Kovalev, Mike Fisher, Chris Kelly, Jarkko Ruutu and Brian Elliott were also dealt by Ottawa, the last-place team in the Eastern Conference.
Potulny didn't record a point in three NHL games this season. He had 18 goals and 23 assists in 58 games with Rockford of the AHL.
