If Bryan Murray wants to shake up the Senators’ roster before Christmas, he better hurry.

The NHL’s holiday roster freeze goes into effect at midnight Sunday and is in place until Dec. 27. The Senators can only recall players in the event of an emergency and no trades are allowed. Murray has tried to make deals to help his struggling club, but he hasn’t been able to find any help on the trade front.

The Senators are interested in dealing for Canucks D Kevin Bieksa, but he isn’t on the trading block yet.
