Senators acquire Kyle Turris

The Ottawa Senators acquired center Kyle Turris round draft choice in the 2012 Entry Draft.

Turris, 22, was an early season holdout after his initial three-year, entry- level contract expired, making him a restricted free agent. He inked a multi- year contract with the Coyotes on November 22 and has recorded four penalty minutes in six games this season.

In 2010-11, Turris established career highs in games (65), goals (11), assists (14) and points (25). He was selected with the third overall pick by Phoenix in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and has tallied 19 goals, 27 assists and 43 penalty minutes in 137 career NHL contests.

Rundblad made his NHL debut on October 7 -- the Senators' season-opener against Detroit. In 24 career games, the 21-year-old has recorded one goal and three assists.
