Vladislav Namestnikov’s time on Broadway is over.
The Rangers traded the Russian forward to the Senators in exchange for AHL defenseman Nick Ebert and a fourth-round pick in 2021. The Rangers reportedly retain $750,000 of salary in the deal.
Namestnikov’s agent Dan Milstein announced the trade on Twitter, writing “Excited for new opportunity!!!!!!”
A former first-round draft pick, Namestnikov came to the Rangers in the 2018 trade deadline deal that sent Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller to the Lightning. In 99 games with New York, he tallied 13 goals and 35 points, though was pointless through two games this season.
