A trio of NHL teams nearly pulled off a blockbuster trade Friday night.

Talks on a three-way transaction that would have sent Matt Duchene to the Ottawa Senators ended with no deal, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

Kyle Turris would have gone from Ottawa to the Nashville Predators, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. Friedman also noted that the deal would have included several draft picks, and may have featured a prospect or two.

Senators general manager Pierre Dorion has been attempting to land Duchene since mid-September and discussions heated up in the last couple of weeks, according to Dreger.

Dorion aggressively pursued Duchene to no avail earlier this fall, as Postmedia's Bruce Garrioch reported on Sept. 19.
