Senators Rumors: Fellow Atlantic Division Team Showing Interest In Shane Pinto

The Boston Bruins have emerged as potential suitors in the ongoing saga surrounding Ottawa Senators' center Shane Pinto.

Reports suggest that the 22-year-old restricted free agent is engaged in contract negotiations with the Senators, but a significant gap in their discussions has fueled trade inquiries from other NHL teams.

With the Senators facing salary cap constraints this season, they appear open to entertaining trade offers for Pinto.

The belief within the organization is that their prospect center, Ridly Grieg, could be just as talented, if not better, than Pinto, making the situation more intriguing.

One NHL insider, Jimmy Murphy, has pondered whether the Boston Bruins could enter the mix for Pinto. However, acquiring Pinto might come at a steep price.

The Senators are reportedly seeking prospects who could potentially join their roster for the upcoming season. Murphy's source suggests that Fabian Lysell and Johnny Beecher might be on the Senators' radar.

Over his first three seasons in the NHL, the 22-year-old has scored 21 goals and 43 total points across 99 games played.

Pinto is a former second-round pick (32nd overall), by the Senators in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
