Senators' Ryan Dzingel to play first game since trade from Hurricanes

Ryan Dzingel is pumped to shake off the rust and finally get back out there, playing his first game back with the Senators after the trade from Carolina and serving his 14-day quarantine.

Ottawa Senators forward Ryan Dzingel will be in the lineup Thursday against the Calgary Flames, his first game with the Senators since being re-acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes on Feb. 13.

Dzingel completed his mandatory 14-day quarantine over the weekend and has been practising with the Senators since Sunday. He began his career with the Senators, playing three-and-a-half seasons in Ottawa before being traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets at the 2018-19 trade deadline.

"It's been a long time since I was excited and nervous to practice," he said after his first practice Sunday, according to "It was an awesome day and I can't get wait to get things going in a real game and I'm itching to get out there."

Dzingel, who turns 29 next week, has four points in 11 games this season.
