It was announced on Wednesday that the Senators had claimed forward Gabriel Dumont off of waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The 27-year-old forward has three goals and four assists in 64 career NHL games with Tampa Bay and the Montreal Canadiens and has appeared in seven games with the Lightning this season.
"We know Gabriel brings a lot of leadership, high character and is someone who can take face-offs," said Sens GM Pierre Dorion about the acquisition. "For us, this is something that we felt we could do to improve our team so we're really excited to have him on board."
