The Ottawan Senators shipped Mike Hoffman out of Ottawa on Tuesday after speculation he was on the trade block and news that he was in the middle of a potentially hazardous situation as someone who may or may not have known about the cyberbullying issues between his girlfriend and Erik Karlsson’s wife.
TRADE: The #Sens have acquired forward Mikkel Boedker, defenceman Julius Bergman and a sixth-round choice in the 2020 NHL Draft from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Mike Hoffman, Cody Donaghy and Ottawa’s fifth-round pick in 2020: https://t.co/5LnYzNZv6Q

The Sharks then turned and flipped Hoffman to the Florida Panthers.
The Senators got significantly less in return for Hoffman than they would have liked because of the controversy surrounding him and his fiance. But, he has the potential to add top-six scoring to the Panthers roster. Hoffman has scored 107 goals and 230 points in 342 games. The Senators acquired Boedker in the deal. He’s not nearly at the level Hoffman is in terms of offensive production.
Still, despite seemingly winning the trade, the Sharks moved Hoffman.
⬅️to Florida Panthers:
-F Mike Hoffman
-7th Rd selection (207th) in 2018 Draft
-2nd Rd selection in 2019 Draft
-4th Rd selection (123rd) in 2018 Draft
-5th Rd selection (139th) in 2018 Draft#SJSharks #NHL

What comes next is a potential trade including Erik Karlsson as rumors that the Senators are talking to the Vegas Golden Knights about a trade have begun to surface. In a matter of a few days, the Senators may completely change the outlook of their team and this week will be a busy time in the NHL.
