The Alex Kovalev experiment has come to an end - the Ottawa Senators sent the "Russian Riddle" to the Pittsburgh Penguins today in exchange for a conditional 7th round draft pick. If the Penguins make it past the first round of the playoffs and Kovalev plays in 50% of the games, the draft pick becomes a 6th round selection.

Moving the 38-year old veteran provides the Senators with a roster spot to continue auditioning players from Binghamton.

In other moves today, the Sens claimed forward Marek Svatos off the waiver wire from the Nashville Predators.
