Today marked the one-year anniversary of the Dion Phaneuf trade to the Ottawa Senators.

He marked the occasion with a short-handed goal (his seventh goal of the season) and a lengthy fight with Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn — both happening in the first period. That scrap lasted more than 40 seconds before both combatants finally gave up and let officials intervene.

Talk about an eventful opening 20 minutes for the veteran defenseman.
