OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the team has acquired forward Dominik Kubalik, prospect defenceman Donovan Sebrango, a conditional 2024 first-round draft pick and Detroit's 2024 fourth-round selection from the Red Wings in exchange for forward Alex DeBrincat.

The initial condition on the first-round pick is as follows -- the Red Wings will have the option of sending their own 2024 first-round pick or Boston's 2024 first-round pick (previously acquired on March 2, 2023) to Ottawa. However, if the Bruins' 2024 first-round selection is an eventual top-10 pick (following the annual draft lottery), Boston will have the option of retaining the pick and transfering its 2025 unprotected first-round selection to Detroit. The Red Wings will then have the option of sending that draft pick or their own first-round pick in 2024 to the Senators to complete this trade.

Kubalik, 27, skated in all but one of the Red Wings' 82 regular-season contests in 2022-23 and established a new career high in assists (25) while falling one point shy of matching his career high in points (45) by way of also tallying 20 goals while tying for third in team scoring. A native of Plzen, Czechia, Kubalik spent the three previous campaigns with the Chicago Blackhawks after originally being selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the seventh round (191st overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft. He has since registered 161 points (82 goals, 79 assists) and 74 penalty minutes over 283 NHL regular-season games and eight points (four goals, four assists) over nine NHL playoff contests.

An Ottawa native, Sebrango, 21, split the 2022-23 campaign between Detroit's American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, and its ECHL affiliate, the Toledo Walleye, recording 12 points (one goal, 11 assists) over 23 contests with Toledo in addition to seven points (four goals, three assists) over 39 games with Grand Rapids. He also recorded two points (one goal, one assist) and 12 penalty minutes over 13 ECHL post-season contests.

Internationally, Sebrango was an alternate captain with Team Canada at the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship in Edmonton and helped the Canadians capture a gold medal, recording two points (two assists), while skating in each of his team's seven tournament games.
