Ottawa Senators Acquire Erik Gudbranson From The Anaheim Ducks

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the team has acquired defenceman Erik Gudbranson from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a Senators' (previously acquired from Edmonton) fifth-round selection in the 2021 NHL Draft.

An Ottawa native, Gudbranson registered nine points (four goals, five assists) and 91 penalty minutes over 44 games in his lone season with the Ducks in 2019-20. He began the campaign with the Pittsburgh Penguins where he was held scoreless while recording four penalty minutes.

"Erik Gudbranson provides another sizable presence to our defence corps," said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "He's a reliable veteran who plays an intimidating style of game and someone who will add a combination of grit, energy and, most importantly, leadership to our lineup."
