Mike Hoffman of the Ottawa Senators was traded twice in one day. The first trade was by the only professional team he's ever played for when the Senators traded him, Cody Donaghey, and their fifth-round choice in the 2020 draft to the San Jose Sharks for Mikkel Boedker, Julius Bergman, and a sixth-round choice in the 2020 draft. Hours later, the Sharks traded him and a 2018 seventh-round choice to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Florida's 2019 second-round pick as well as their fourth- and fifth-round picks in 2018. Hoffman's head-spinning day came following accusations by Senators team captain Erik Karlsson and his wife Melinda accused Mike and his fiancée, Monika Caryk of online harassment according to Daily Mail. Mike and Monika deny the charges, but Senators general manager Pierre Dorion believes it was the right move, saying it
"showcases our determination to strengthen the future of the team by improving chemistry, leadership and character in the locker room and on the ice. We are confident it is a step in the right direction for the long-term success of this organization."
