Pierre Dorion said : ”Mark will be missed. Knowing that, this deal returns a young player (Brannstrom) who our fans will love for many years to come.“ The 178th selection at the 2010 draft, the 26-year-old Stone scored 123 goals and added 188 assists for 311 points in 366 games with Ottawa. The six-foot-four, 219-pound Winnipeg native has been a full-time NHLer since 2014-15, and had already recorded a career-high 28 goals to go along with 34 assists in 59 games this season for the Senators. Taken 15th overall in the 2017 draft by Vegas, Brannstrom is the key piece in the deal for Ottawa. The 19-year-old Swedish blueliner, who stands five foot 10 and weighs 173 pounds, had seven goals and 21 assists in 41 games this season for the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League. Lindberg, 27, had four goals and eight assists in 35 games in 2018-19 for the Golden Knights. He has 71 points (34 goals, 37 assists) in 232 career NHL games with Vegas and the New York Rangers. The six-foot-one, 202-pound Swede was taken by the Golden Knights in their expansion draft back in June 2017. “Erik Brannstrom is the top defence prospect in the game; simply a dynamic talent who will be a major component of our future,” External link

The six-foot-four, 219-pound Winnipeg native has been a full-time NHLer since 2014-15, and had already recorded a career-high 28 goals to go along with 34 assists in 59 games this season for the Senators. Taken 15th overall in the 2017 draft by Vegas, Brannstrom is the key piece in the deal for Ottawa.

Lindberg, 27, had four goals and eight assists in 35 games in 2018-19 for the Golden Knights. He has 71 points (34 goals, 37 assists) in 232 career NHL games with Vegas and the New York Rangers. The six-foot-one, 202-pound Swede was taken by the Golden Knights in their expansion draft back in June 2017. “Erik Brannstrom is the top defence prospect in the game; simply a dynamic talent who will be a major component of our future,” External link
