The San Jose Sharks traded forward Dylan Gambrell to the Ottawa Senators for a 2022 seventh-round pick, the teams announced Sunday.

The draft pick originally belonged to San Jose, but Ottawa acquired it in January in exchange for defenseman Christian Jaros.

Gambrell, a second-round pick of the Sharks in 2016, has skated in 110 career NHL games, recording 10 goals and 13 assists. The 25-year-old center has been productive in the minors, though, tallying 58 points in 69 AHL contests.

"Dylan's a player whose progress we've monitored since his collegiate career at the University of Denver," Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said. "He's a good skating center, a strong checker, and a responsible penalty killer. We have a void at center on account of some recent injuries and Dylan will help us with that need."

The Sens are shorthanded down the middle of the ice, as Shane Pinto is expected to miss one-to-two weeks and Colin White is out until at least February.

This marks the fifth trade made between Dorion and Sharks GM Doug Wilson.
