  Tyler Posey Confirms Teen Wolf Movie Is in the Works at Paramount+ The MTV show aired its series finale 5 years ago View this post on Instagram RELATED: Teen Wolf Cast Reunites for Show's 9th Anniversary — and Dylan O'Brien Still Has Stiles' Jeep! Gallery: ‘Teen Wolf’ Cast: Where Are They Now? (US Weekly) Teen Wolf, loosely based on the 1985 movie of the same name, ran for six seasons from 2011 to 2017. The series follows Scott (Posey), a high school student who is bitten by a werewolf and must cope with its effects on him, his friends and his family. Posey shared throwback photos of Teen Wolf all week in the lead-up to Friday's announcement.

As expected, the Ottawa Senators have signed Tyler Ennis to a one-year contract. The deal will carry an NHL salary of $900K and ends the professional tryout that Ennis had been in camp on. Senators GM Pierre Dorion released a short statement.

"Tyler has had a strong training camp. He’s a highly skilled veteran whose leadership qualities should prove as valuable as they were here two seasons ago. He’s capable of generating offence both at five-on-five and on the power-play, and, with an ability to play both wing postions, he’ll be a good addition for us at forward."

Blues trade Zach Sanford to Senators for Logan Brown, 2022 conditional pick

  Blues trade Zach Sanford to Senators for Logan Brown, 2022 conditional pick The St. Louis Blues have traded forward Zach Sanford to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for forward Logan Brown and a 2022 conditional draft pick, the franchise announced Saturday. © Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The conditional draft pick is removed from the deal if Brown plays more than 30 NHL games during the 2021-22 season. TRADE ALERT! We've acquired St. Louis native Logan Brown from the Ottawa Senators. #stlblues #HeartlandOfHockey— St. Louis Blues (@StLouisBlues) September 25, 2021 Sanford spent four of his five NHL seasons with the Blues.

Ennis, 32, spent the 2020-21 season with the Edmonton Oilers, scoring three goals and nine points in 30 games. Though those numbers won’t jump off the page, the undersized forward is versatile enough to move around the lineup and add a little offense wherever he is deployed. In 2019-20 with the Senators, he recorded 14 goals and 33 points in 61 games before being flipped at the deadline.

As with any other short-term deal for a team like the Senators, the trade deadline should be considered. Ennis once again becomes a chip for the team to cash in should they receive an offer, though his value around the league has certainly decreased over the last year. Depending on where he fits into the lineup, that value could bounce back, though it seems unlikely he’ll steal much ice time from the team’s younger forwards.

Unvaccinated Zac Rinaldo will be paid AHL salary but won't play for Blue Jackets or affiliate

  Unvaccinated Zac Rinaldo will be paid AHL salary but won't play for Blue Jackets or affiliate The Columbus Blue Jackets say unvaccinated NHL player Zac Rinaldo won't join their AHL affiliate in Cleveland after clearing waivers.The Columbus Blue Jackets won't even offer that option to center Zac Rinaldo.

The key for Ottawa was also to add more salary to get closer to the cap floor. The team is technically still under it, but should be able to fix that with a late-camp waiver claim or a minor trade. Signing Brady Tkachuk, the last remaining major RFA, would also obviously fix that issue, though it isn’t clear how close the two sides are.

NHL Betting Picks: Dallas Stars at Ottawa Senators .
The NHL schedule-makers pulled no punches when they were working up Dallas' first week. After defeating the New York Rangers on the road (in overtime, no less), Dallas then traveled to Boston and fell, 3-1 on Saturday. There will be no respite after two road games, as they'll now take on Ottawa in Canada. In fact, Dallas won't play on their home ice until next Friday against the Los Angeles Kings. That's not a fun way to start the season. On the other side of things, the Senators stand at 1-1 on the season after two home-and-home games against their Canadian rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
