Ottawa Senators fans can find an early look at the crucial player the team received within the Mark Stone trade since the team is calling-up 19-year-old defenseman Erik Brannstrom for the home match against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.
As the reunite of Duchene and Dzingel in Columbus centered on draft selections, Ottawa acquired a potential celebrity in Brannstrom by Vegas. He had been selected 15th overall in 20 17 by the Golden Knights and is considered a elite puck-moving defensive prospect. The Knights also sent forward Oscar Lindberg and a second-round pick.
In five games with Belleville since the deal, he has a help.
The Sweden native also played for his country from the whole world junior championships this past season and had four goals in five games.
