With the trade deadline coming up on Monday, the Ottawa Senators have decided to sit Vladislav Namestnikov for the second game in a row. Namestnikov is a healthy scratch again Saturday night as the Senators take on the Montreal Canadiens.

Namestnikov, 27, was traded to Ottawa from the New York Rangers back in October. In 54 games with the Sens this season, the forward has 13 goals and 25 points, making him a great option as a depth player for a team looking to make a deep playoff run.

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, Toronto, Winnipeg, Colorado and Columbus have all looked into getting Namestnikov, but, so far, a deal has not been set in stone.



Namestnikov is a former first round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning (27th overall). In 2018, he was sent to the Rangers as part of the deal that brought Ryan McDonagh and J. T. Miller to Tampa Bay.

With Ottawa in full rebuild mode, expect any return for Namestnikov to be in the form of picks and/or prospects.
