The Ottawa Senators acquired forward Matt Kassian from the Minnesota Wild this afternoon in exchange for a sixth round pick in the 2014 Entry Draft.

Kassian, who is listed at 6-foot-4 and 232 pounds, was a second round pick of the Wild back in 2005. The 26 year old will bring some heft and sandpaper to a lineup that hasn't outweighed it's opposition very often this season.

Here is what GM Bryan Murray had to say about the acquisition of Kassian for the Senators and the team's approach heading into the 2013 Trade Deadline:

It was a tough shootout loss for the Sens as they played very well over the course of the game. They gave the Bruins everything they could handle and, realistically, deserved a victory.

There were plenty of fireworks over the course of the game, but for the most part was played out in the neutral zone as the tight checking nature of the Sens and Bruins systems nullified each other's attacks outside of home run plays and whacky bounces.

Coach MacLean felt the Sens were full value for their effort. They didn't 'salvage' a point, they earned one.

Mark Stone joined the Sens lineup last Wednesday in Toronto and has had two games to work his way into the first squad. It has been an adjustment for the 20 year old after missing a few weeks with a hand injury, but he appears to be settling in.

He played 39 shifts in his first two games and put a pair of shots on goal. The good news is Sens fans can expect both of those totals to go up as he gets his legs back and figures out how to get to dangerous ice.

Here are some of Mark's thoughts after a weekend in the NHL...
