The Senators haven't closed the door on Stephane Da Costa.

Though many thought the centre's days with the Senators were numbered, Da Costa was among a group of players given a qualifying offer Wednesday as teams got down to business with the NHL entry draft set for Sunday in New Jersey.

The deadline for qualifying offers to be filed is July 2 at 5 p.m.
