NHL Rumors: Islanders Trade Proposal For Senators Alex DeBrincat Revealed

The New York Islanders, led by GM Lou Lamoriello, were reportedly in pursuit of Alex DeBrincat from the Ottawa Senators.

They made a trade proposal that included center Jean-Gabriel Pageau and right wing Oliver Wahlstrom, with Pageau having three years left on his contract.

However, the offer fell short of what the Senators were looking for, as it did not include any additional draft picks.

This past season, Pageau put up 13 goals and 40 points over 70 games played, three points shy of tying his career high in points, which he set in 2015-16 over 82 games.

Wahlstrom, on the other hand, had a nice, but short, season, scoring seven goals and 16 points across 35 games played in his fourth NHL season.

Despite the potential reunion of Pageau with his former team, the offer lacked the necessary appeal to entice the Senators.

While it is unclear if DeBrincat would have considered signing with the Islanders, the trade proposal did not succeed in swaying the Senators' decision. Photo Credit: Jamie Sabau-USA TODAY Sports
