Report: Sens make Duchene available, re-engage with Stone in contract talks
The Ottawa Senators have made Matt Duchene available and have re-engaged with Mark Stone in discussions regarding an extension over the past few days to see if there's common ground, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.
Trade talks involving Duchene are expected to heat up over the next few days, according to Friedman.
Both players are pending unrestricted free agents, and as a result, they've long been considered to be two of the biggest potential trade-deadline targets for other teams.
The Winnipeg Jets and Vegas Golden Knights have reportedly shown interest in Stone.
Duchene was dealt to the Senators by the Colorado Avalanche in November 2017, while Stone has spent his entire career with Ottawa after being drafted by the Sens in 2010.
