According to the latest information circulating in the NHL, the Ottawa Senators reportedly declined a large offer from the New York Islanders, involving a transaction for Alex DeBrincat.

As reported by journalist Andrew Gross of Newsday, the Islanders' offer included forwards Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Oliver Wahlstrom. A first-round pick was also likely part of the trade.

The Senators' GM, Pierre Dorion, therefore declined the return of JGP with the team that selected him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. It's possible that his contract of $5M per season for another three years may have cooled Ottawa's interest.

In the end, Dorion preferred to accept the offer from the Detroit Red Wings which included forward Dominik Kubalik, prospect Donovan Sebrango, and a first and fourth-round pick in 2024.
