Senators make minor league deal, acquire much needed goaltending helpSena
As injuries pile up for the Ottawa Senators organization, it has been announced that the Belleville Senators have traded for goaltender Dylan Ferguson of the Toronto Marlies.
Ferguson was acquired in exchange for future considerations. He is currently signed under an AHL contract. The 24-year-old has played in 5 AHL games so far for the Marlies, in which he has a .888 save percentage and a 3.12 goals-against average. He was a member of the Vegas Golden Knights organization pretty much since its inception. He played in one NHL game for the team before being flipped between their AHL and ECHL affiliates.
Dylan Ferguson, 24, was selected in the 7th round of the 2017 draft by the Dallas Stars but signed with the Vegas Golden Knights organization. He won the ECHL championship when he did so in 2020-21 with the Fort Wayne Komets.
It is expected that Ferguson will simply serve as a depth goaltending option with AHL experience as the BSens have lost Kevin Mandolese and Antoine Bibeau to injury. The Belleville Senators have also acquired goaltenders Luke Richardson and Brian Wilson via PTO and callups. Ferguson is also expected to appear for the BSens on Saturday against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
