NHL Rumors: 3 Senators Done In Ottawa

While speaking with reporters, Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion announced that the team will not be re-signing pending UFAs Chris Tierney and Tyler Ennis. With that, he also noted that Victor Mete will not be getting a qualifying offer. 

Tierney's days in Ottawa were clearly numbered all season. The 27-year-old just put together the worst season of his career. In 70 games, he had just six goals and 12 assists. With his career-low of 18 points, he also recorded a minus-12 rating. With all of this, he will be aiming to bounce back with a new team for 2022-23.

When it comes to Ennis, it would have been understandable if they wanted to explore the possibility of keeping him around. He provided solid secondary scoring all year, as he had eight goals and 16 assists in 57 games. Yet, he will now be a UFA once again this summer. On a league-minimum deal, he's definitely a player worth signing. 

Mete found his placement on Ottawa's depth chart fall this season, so it makes sense for both parties to move on. In 37 games this season, the 23-year-old d-man recorded seven assists and sported a minus-19 rating.
