OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the team has acquired forward Ryan Dzingel from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for forwards Alex Galchenyuk and Cedric Paquette.
A native of Wheaton, Ill., Dzingel returns to the Senators in the midst of a campaign in which he has registered four points (two goals, two assists) and two penalty minutes over 11 games in his second season with the Hurricanes.
Dzingel, 28, was selected by the Senators with the team's seventh-round draft pick (204th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft. Over 343 career NHL games with Ottawa, the Columbus Blue Jackets and Carolina, he has posted 171 points (76 goals, 95 assists) and 137 penalty minutes. He has also tallied four points (three goals, one assist) and eight penalty minutes over 28 NHL post-season contests. Dzingel's return to the Senators sees him tied for 32nd among all-time franchise players in points (126) while ranking 43rd in games played (247).
Both Galchenyuk and Paquette were skating in their first season respectively for Ottawa.
