SENATORS GM PIERRE DORION SCOUTING WESTERN CONFERENCE TEAM FOR SECOND TIME IN FOUR DAYS

JAN 22, 2023  (18H39)      COOPER GODIN
The Ottawa Senators are currently tied with Montreal for second-last in the Eastern Conference with 43 points and are 11 points back of Pittsburgh for the second and final wild card spot.

There's a good chance that the Senators will miss the Stanley Cup Playoffs for a sixth consecutive season, but general manager Pierre Dorion is still exploring ways to make his team better down the stretch.

According to Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago, Dorion is in attendance for Sunday's game between the Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings. This marks the second time in four days that the Sens GM has been scouting the Kings, as he was also at Thursday's game against the Nashville Predators.

David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period added that Dorion is interested in some of Los Angeles' right-shot defencemen. Sean Durzi and Sean Walker are two names that the Senators have their sights on before the trade deadline on March 3rd as Dorion looks to improve his blue line.


Durzi, 24, is in the first year of a two-year deal which sees him earn $1.7 million per season. He'll be a restricted free agent in July 2024. As for Walker, 28, he also has one more year on his contract after this season with an AAV of $2.65 million and will be a UFA upon expiry of that deal.
