The Ottawa Senators may have a replacement lined up if they can deal winger Alex DeBrincat in the near future.

Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia writes that the "expectation is that if the Senators can find a way to get DeBrincat and his $9 million salary off the books for next season, Ottawa could sign unrestricted free agent winger Vladimir Tarasenko."

Garrioch adds that the Anaheim Ducks and New York Islanders are among the interested clubs, and notes talks with the Detroit Red Wings may have been revisited recently.
