Detroit Red Wings Acquire Alex DeBrincat From Ottawa Senators

The Detroit Red Wings have acquired Alex DeBrincat from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Dominik Kubalik, Donovan Sebrango, a conditional 2024 first-round pick, and Detroit's 2024 fourth-round pick.

DeBrincat was expected to be moved to Detroit, and now it has finally happened. The Michigan native is now a Red Wing, and he will be a major part of their top six moving forward. Appearing in 82 games last season, the 25-year-old posted 27 goals to go along with 66 points. 

The Red Wings have also signed DeBrincat to a four-year deal, $31.5 million contract.

The Senators have added a skilled winger in Kubalik. Although he may not produce as much as DeBrincat, he is a solid middle-six option and should work well on their power play. In 81 games last season with the Red Wings, he had 20 goals and 45 points.

Sebrango is a young defenseman who has the tools to emerge as an NHL player later down the road. In 39 games last season with the Grand Rapids Griffins, the 21-year-old had four goals and three assists.

Alas, the DeBrincat sweepstakes are over, and the Red Wings are the official winners. Who do you think won the deal? Let your opinions be heard in the comments.
