Cedric Paquette and Alex Galchenyuk were traded to the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday by the Ottawa Senators for Ryan Dzingel.
Paquette, a forward, has one goal in nine games this season. He was acquired with defenseman Braydon Coburn in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Dec. 27.
Selected in the fourth round (No. 101) of the 2012 NHL Draft, Paquette has scored 86 points (48 goals, 38 assists) in 386 regular-season games with the Senators and Lightning and 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 91 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He won the Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay last season.
Galchenyuk, a forward who signed a one-year contract on Oct. 28, has one goal in eight games this season.
The No. 3 pick in the 2012 draft, Galchenyuk has scored 321 points (136 goals, 185 assists) in 557 regular-season games with the Senators, Minnesota Wild, Pittsburgh Penguins, Arizona Coyotes and Montreal Canadiens and 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in 32 playoff games.
“Cedric is a strong, physical forward who won the Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay last season,” Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell said. “We’re excited to add both of these players to our forward group.”
Dzingel, a forward, has four points (two goals, two assists) in 11 games this season. He was selected by Ottawa in the seventh round (No. 204) of the 2011 NHL Draft.
Dzingel has scored 171 points (76 goals, 95 assists) in 343 regular-season games with the Hurricanes, Senators and Columbus Blue Jackets and four points (three goals, one assist) in 28 playoff games.
