The Senators have acquired defenceman Andy Sutton from the New York Islanders.

Sources told QMI Agency the Senators have given up a second round pick to acquire Sutton.

GM Bryan Murray wanted to get a deal done Tuesday in advance of Wednesday's 3 p.m. trade deadline and had been saying he would look for a defenceman to provide depth along the blue line.

In 567 career NHL games with the San Jose Sharks, Minnesota Wild, Atlanta Thrashers and the Islanders, Sutton has scored 34 goals, added 101 assists and 984 penalty minutes.

The Senators host the New York Rangers tonight.
