Chiasson on the move? – Updated

Besides getting deals for Mike Hoffman and Cody Ceci done this summer, the Ottawa Senators also needed to decide what to do with defenseman Patrick Wiercioch (good as gone?) and forward Alex Chiasson.

Renaud Lavoie of TVA tweeted out this earlier today:

Drafted in the second round (38 overall) of the 2009 NHL entry draft by the Dallas Stars, Chiasson -with Alex Guptill, Nicholas Paul, and a 2015 second round pick (Gabriel Gagne) for star forward Jason Spezza, and Ludwig Karlsson.

At 6’3” and 202 pounds, the right handed shooting winger has played 153 NHL games with the Senators. He’s scored 19 goals and has had 21 helpers over that period of time – hardly becoming the player they had hoped he would turn out to be…well for any significant amount of time.

Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel has reported that the Florida Panthers are currently seeking a 3rd line winger.

Chiasson certainly has the build the Panthers have been adding to their team, he’s also a winger, could something be done here?

UPDATE

The Ottawa Senators have traded Alex Chiasson to the Calgary Flames for defenseman Pat Sieloff.
