OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) The San Jose Sharks acquired Mike Hoffman from the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday, again paying a bargain price for a scoring winger another team was eager to trade.

Four months after Evander Kane came from Buffalo and worked out well for the Sharks, they picked up Hoffman from Ottawa amid a dispute between him and his girlfriend and Senators captain Erik Karlsson and his wife. Melinda Karlsson filed an order of protection against Hoffman's fianc�e Monika Caryk, alleging harassment and cyberbullying.

The trade sends Hoffman, defensive prospect Cody Donaghey and a 2020 fifth-round pick to San Jose for forward Mikkel Boedker, defensive prospect Julius Bergman and a 2020 sixth-round pick. Ottawa general manager Pierre Dorion said he hopes the trade strengthens the team "by improving chemistry, leadership and character in the locker room and on the ice."
