Derek Stepan to Miss Remainder of Season With Senators

Acquired by the Senators in December from the Arizona Coyotes for a second-round pick, Stepan carries a $6.5 million cap hit in the final season of his current deal. He’s struggled during his run with the Senators and there had been talk about him potentially being traded to get him closer to his family and his newborn child. The team said he is “expected to be fully recovered from surgery ahead of next season”, but it’s more likely he will sign elsewhere.

Senators' Derek Stepan could miss the rest of the season

The news doesn’t appear to be good for Senators center Derek Stepan.

That would put an end to his season and with it, the Senators' plans to trade him back to an American-based team.

Derek Stepan Wants To Come Home

Derek Stepan is lost as a member of the Ottawa Senators. The established centerman has gone so far as to change his jersey number—asking youngster Logan Brown to switch—to get back to what feels normal for him. Through 11 games in Ottawa, he’s certainly a victim to a rebuilding franchise....

NHL Rumors: Ducks in on Rangers Tony DeAngelo, Penguins asked Leafs about Travis Dermott, and Derek Stepan on the block already

Trade Rumor: Is Senators and Derek Stepan Marriage Already Doomed?

Kypreos reported that a Stepan trade may already high on the Senators to-do list. The newly-acquired center came over to the franchise in a trade from the Arizona Coyotes but with only three points in nine games and with the Senators being even worse that many insiders expected they could be, the Sens might want to roll with young stars and prospects, moving out a veteran like Stepan in the process.
