Ottawa Senators

Senators acquire Ryan Shannon

From Spector’s Blog:

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray hinted last week he was in the market for a potential scoring defenseman and may have acquired one today.

Murray dealt little-used defenseman Lawrence Nycholat to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for 25-year-old forward Ryan Shannon.

With this move it appears Murray won’t be interested in UFA forwards Mark Parrish and Glen Murray. Shannon has only seen limited action in two NHL seasons split between Anaheim and Vancouver, although he did play in 11 playoff games with the Ducks during their Cup run in 2007.

The Canucks weren’t exactly loaded at forward last season, so if Shannon wasn’t able to consistenly crack the Vancouver line up, Senators fans shouldn’t be overly excited about this acquisition.

The Moose head to B.C. today where they will begin four games on the road starting on Friday with the Canucks (of Abbotsford).

Their lineup will be bolstered by the addition of Dominic Toninato who passed through waivers on Wednesday.

The Jets take their act on the road starting with a game tomorrow night in St. Louis against the Blue.

The Moose will be in Abbotsford for a practice on Thursday as they get ready to kick off four away from Manitoba.
