The Ottawa Senators have completed their second trade of the day, acquiring defenceman Cody Goloubef from the Boston Bruins in exchange for forward Paul Carey.

Goloubef was originally a second-round pick — 37th overall — of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2008 NHL Draft before signing a two-way contract with the Bruins during the 2018 off-season.

Through 16 games with Boston’s AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins, Goloubef has recorded three goals and nine assists this season. At the NHL level, the 29-year-old has appeared in 129 career games split between the Blue Jackets and Colorado Avalanche, scoring two goals and adding 21 assists.

Goloubef will be assigned to Ottawa’s AHL affiliate, the Belleville Senators.

Carey, 30, has appeared in only five games for the Senators this season and did not register a point. In 29 games with the AHL’s Belleville Senators, he posted five goals and 22 assists.

Earlier in the day, the Senators traded winger Morgan Klimchuk to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Gabriel Gagne.
