Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - The Ottawa Senators picked up forward Ales Hemsky from the Edmonton Oilers before Wednesday's trade deadline, acquiring the veteran winger for a pair of draft picks.

Hemsky, 30, heads to Ottawa for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a third-rounder in 2015. The Czech Republic native has nine goals and 17 assists in 55 games with the Oilers this season.

A first-round selection (13th overall) by the Oilers in 2001, Hemsky has recorded 142 goals and 335 assists for 477 points in 652 NHL games.

"It's just a mix of feelings," said Hemsky. "It's hard to leave from here because I've been here for so long and I was comfortable here. I knew the city and the team and everything. It's the only team I've been playing for so it's kind of weird. Like I said, I'm ready for the challenge."

Hemsky joins an Ottawa club that entered Wednesday four points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
