The Ottawa Senators find themselves in need of a new addition to their top six following Alex DeBrincat’s trade to the Detroit Red Wings. However, a potential solution may be on the market in the form of Vladimir Tarasenko. Recent rumors surrounding Tarasenko’s future had initially pointed towards a potential deal with the Carolina Hurricanes, only to take a sudden twist when the agreement fell through and Tarasenko sought new representation.

It appears that Tarasenko’s expectations for his upcoming free agency were not met, leading him to part ways with his previous agent, Paul Theofanous, and enlist the services of Pat Brisson and J.P. Barry from CAA. This unexpected move has left many wondering about the Russian winger’s next move.
