NHL Trade Review: Oilers acquire Ennis

From The Athletic

          The Edmonton Oilers have acquired forward Tyler Ennis from the Ottawa Senators for a 2021 5th round pick.

          Ennis is a bottom six winger who has shown they he can score. A three time 20 goal scorer, Ennis is on a near league minimum deal. In his one year in Ottawa, Ennis has scored his most goals already since 2014-15. He is a really good depth option for the Oilers, and can improve scoring on their third and fourth lines. They trade a fifth round pick for him, which is a good price for an NHL forward. Ennis is a pending UFA, thus the low return. The Senators shipped off multiple players this week, as they are once again shedding salary and getting picks for pending UFAs.

           Ennis, 30, has scored 14 goals with 19 assists for 33 points in 61 games for the Senators this year. In his NHL career for the Senators, Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota Wild and Toronto Maple Leafs Ennis has scored 131 goals with 178 assists for 309 points in 604 games.
