Senators center Ryan Dzingel could be on the move soon.
Trade talks for the 26-year-old are gaining traction, according to Hockey Night in Canada. Other teams believe Ottawa is getting closer to making a decision.

Dzingel has 22 goals and 22 assists (the 44 points are a career high) in 57 games this season. His two-year, $3.6 million contract is up at the end of the year, so he would be a rental for any team acquiring him via trade.
The center sat out games Thursday against the Devils and Friday against the Blue Jackets to avoid injury before Monday’s trade deadline.
Ottawa dealt center Matt Duchene to the Blue Jackets on Friday.
Mark Stone is also reportedly available as he has not come to an agreement on an extension with the club.
