Sharks trade Gambrell to Senators
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."
This marks the fifth trade made between Dorion and Sharks GM Doug Wilson.
