OTTAWA — The Ottawa Senators acquired forward Ryan Dzingel from the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday in exchange for forwards Alex Galchenyuk and Cedric Paquette.

Dzingel, who was drafted by the Senators in the seventh round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, had four points (2-2) in 11 games with the Hurricanes this season.

He has 171 points (76-95) in 343 career NHL games with Ottawa, Columbus and Carolina.

Galchenyuk scored one goal in eight games for the Senators this season while Paquette had one goal in nine games.

Galchenyuk has 321 points (136-185) over 557 career games with five different teams. Paquette has 86 points (48-38) in 386 career games with the Senators and Tampa Bay Lightning.

"Cedric is a strong, physical forward who won the Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay last season," Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell said in a release. "We're excited to add both of these players to our forward group."

Dzingel will have to quarantine for 14 days before he can play for Ottawa.
