The Ottawa Senators appear to be readying for a possible fire sale ahead of Monday's trade deadline.
After holding them out from the team's 4-0 blowout loss to the New Jersey Devils on Thursday, the Senators made right winger Mark Stone and center Ryan Dzingel available for trade, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.
Stone and Dzingel are the Senators' highest-scoring forwards with 62 and 44 points, respectively, after center Matt Duchene (58 points) was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday. Both are scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency this summer.
The loss to New Jersey drops Ottawa to 22-33-5 on the campaign. The Senators rank last in the entire NHL and are on pace to finish the year with their worst points percentage (40.8 percent) since the 1995-96 season.
