Ottawa Senators Rumors: New Teams Enters Alex DeBrincat Sweepstakes

Alex DeBrincat has made it known that he will not sign a long-term extension with the Ottawa Senators. Thus, Ottawa is shopping him, and according to The Fourth Period, a new team has entered the sweepstakes for his services - the Vegas Golden Knights.

Yes, the reigning Stanley Cup champion Golden Knights are looking to add another star to their group as they look to repeat in 2024. Bringing in DeBrincat would certainly improve their already-strong roster, and he could be the perfect linemate for star center Jack Eichel to work with.

The Golden Knights could be on the hunt for a top-six forward when noting that Ivan Barbashev is a pending unrestricted free agent. If Barbashev decides to test the market, the need for adding a player like DeBrincat would increase for Vegas.

It will be fun to see if the Golden Knights end up making another blockbuster trade by landing DeBrincat this summer. When noting that the winger is a star, we should expect several other clubs to be in the mix.
