OTTAWA â€” The Ottawa Senators added another piece for their playoff push, picking up speedy winger Viktor Stalberg from the Carolina Hurricanes for a third round pick on Tuesday afternoon.
Stalberg brings the Senators a bit more depth on the wing, joining 35-year-old Alexandre Burrows, who was acquired from the Vancouver Canucks on Monday. The 31-year-old Swede has scored nine goals this season, including a pair shorthanded. He figures to slot into Ottawa’s bottom-six forward contingent alongside Burrows, who cost the club Swedish prospect Jonathan Dahlen.
The Senators are chasing down the Montreal Canadiens for top spot in the Atlantic division. They sit four points back with two games in hand entering play on Tuesday.
Burrows, who has nine goals this season, is expected to join the club in Ottawa on Wednesday. Currently in Florida, Stalberg is due to meet up with the team for their game against Colorado on Thursday.
