The Ottawa Senators acquired forward Dylan Gambrell from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

That seventh-round pick initially belonged to the Sharks, but was sent to the Senators in a trade for defenseman Christian Jaros on Jan. 27.

Gambrell, who was acquired by Ottawa late Sunday, is expected to help a Senators team dealing with injuries to centers Colin White (dislocated shoulder), Shane Pinto (upper body) and Clark Bishop (lower body).

"Dylan's a player whose progress we've monitored since his collegiate career at the University of Denver," Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said. "He's a good-skating center, a strong checker and a responsible penalty killer. We have a void at center on account of some recent injuries and Dylan will help us with that need."

Gambrell has recorded 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) in 110 career games with the Sharks. He was selected by San Jose in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft.
