The Ottawa Senators traded defenseman Dylan DeMelo to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a 2020 third-round pick, the team announced Tuesday.

DeMelo, 26, was a part of the trade package Ottawa received from the San Jose Sharks in the Erik Karlsson deal. The pending UFA carries a cap hit of $900K this season.

The blue-liner has played well with the Senators, chipping in 10 assists in 49 games while averaging 19:55 of ice time. In his first season in Ottawa last year, he managed four goals and 22 points in 77 games.

Ottawa now owns two first-round picks, three second-round picks, and two third-round picks in the upcoming draft.
