The Toronto Maple Leafs have sent captain Dion Phaneuf to the Ottawa Senators in a 9-player deal.
In the deal – the Sens also get defenseman Cody Donaghey and forwards Matt Frattin, Casey Bailey as well as Ryan Rupert.
The big piece in the deal though is Dion. With 24 points in 51 games, the Sens will hope Phaneuf provides the final push needed to ascend Ottawa into post season contention.
Ottawa sits just four points out of an Eastern Conference playoff spot.
