The past week hasn't been kind to the Ottawa Senators, with a series of unfortunate events casting a shadow over the team. This string of bad news has left fans and the organization reeling, from key players sidelined with injuries to off-ice controversies.

It all began with Shane Pinto, a restricted free agent, facing a daunting 41-game suspension due to his involvement with gambling. This development sent shockwaves through the organization and raised questions about the team's decision-making.
Injuries further compounded their woes, with two key defensemen, Thomas Chabot and Erik Brannstrom, falling victim to the injury bug. Chabot's fractured hand will keep him out of action for six to eight weeks, while Brannstrom is sidelined with a concussion after a heavy hit from Cal Clutterbuck of the Islanders.
As if that wasn't enough, NHL insider Elliot Friedman has revealed that the NHL is investigating the Senators in connection with a trade involving forward Evgeny Dadanov. It appears that there was a discrepancy in whether Dadanov had submitted his trade request, which had implications for the deal with the Vegas Golden Knights.
"When [Vegas] acquired him from the Ottawa Senators, they were told that Dadonov had not submitted his trade request on time. So if Vegas wanted to move him, they could do whatever they needed to do," Friedman disclosed during "Hockey Night in Canada." However, it has since come to light that Dadanov had indeed submitted the request, leading to potential consequences for the Senators.

The impending NHL announcement on the matter has left many wondering what penalties the Senators might face. While the exact punishment remains uncertain, it's probable that the team will lose a draft pick for the upcoming draft. This setback arrives as the Senators are in the process of rebuilding and making strategic moves to strengthen their roster, adding another layer of complexity to their already challenging season.
