With just one day until the 2022 NHL Draft, Ottawa Senators general manager Pierre Dorion is working the phones to try to upgrade his roster, and he continues to dangle the seventh overall pick as his primary piece of trade bait.
"I would put it about 50-50 right now, picking seventh," Dorion told TSN 1200 on Wednesday. "We got a few irons in the fire. ... I don't think you can expect anything probably until tomorrow closer to the draft. There's always a chance of moving up, moving down, trading the pick for someone we feel could have an impact in our lineup. So that's where we're looking."
Dorion said in May that he was open to trading the team's first-rounder for an "impact player" with some team control.
