The Ottawa Senators acquired defenseman Travis Hamonic from the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

Ottawa recently lost Thomas Chabot for the season with a broken hand.

Hamonic, 31, is in line to play in his 700th career NHL game on Tuesday when the Senators visit the New York Islanders. He was selected by the Islanders in the second round of the 2008 NHL Draft.

Hamonic recorded seven points (three goals, four assists) in 24 games this season with the Canucks. He signed a two-year, $6 million contract with Vancouver in July.

“On behalf of the Vancouver Canucks, I would like to thank Travis for his contributions to the organization,” Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said. “We wish him and his family the best in their next chapter.”

Hamonic has totaled 205 points (43 goals, 162 assists) in 699 NHL games with the Islanders, Calgary Flames and Canucks.
