Prized Ottawa Senators prospect Curtis Lazar cemented his role on the NHL team with an excellent training camp and has progressed daily. The 19-year-old was eligible to play one more year with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL, where he would have been expected to score at a rapid pace. Yet, even with his absence in Edmonton, the Senators have a handful of quality prospects worth following in junior hockey.
The Ottawa Senators have one of the youngest groups of players currently playing in the NHL. They are the fourth youngest team, with an average age of 26, and have had numerous prospects make the jump to the NHL over the last few years, such as Mika Zibanejad, Patrick Wiercioch, and Robin Lehner.
Fresh surroundings will aid certain Ottawa Senators prospects in their development paths this season. Former college forward Alex Guptill is embarking on his pro career, while Swedish forward Tobias Lindberg left his country to join the Oshawa Generals in the OHL. Meanwhile, 2014 draft pick Kelly Summers is leaving the Ottawa valley region to test his abilities in the NCAA.
