History

2008-09: Stefan Noesen scored 24 goals among his 48 points to lead his Detroit Compuware U-16 squad to the USA Hockey National Under-16 championship. Noesen was chosen in the fourth round, 64th overall, of the 2009 OHL Priority Selection by the Plymouth Whalers.

2009-10: In his OHL rookie season with the Plymouth Whalers he scored only three goals and five assists and had just 4 PIM in 33 games.  Noeson admitted “I didn’t really have that great a year. I had to be more mature. It was (difficult) just coming into a 19-year-old league.”

2010-11: After an honest off-season heart to heart with his coaches and with the encouragement of his summer training partner Brendan Morrow of the Dallas Stars, Noesen returned to the OHL with a renewed outlook. In 68 games in his second season for the Whalers, he led his team in scoring with 34 goals and 43 assists to go along with 80 penalty minutes. In 11 playoff games, Noesen scored six goals and added five assists while adding 16 penalty minutes playing an instrumental role in their first-round upset of the Kitchener Rangers. Noesen was chosen in the first round, 21st overall, of the 2011 NHL Draft by the Ottawa Senators.

2012-13: Noesen was an assistant captain for Plymouth and scored at a point-per-game pace in his fourth OHL season. He scored 25 goals with 28 assists in 51 games – missing time with a 10-game OHL suspension that prevented him for playing for Team USA in the 2013 World Junior Championship. The Whalers finished first in the West Division and reached the Western Conference finals against OHL champion London. Noesen scored 7 goals with 12 assists in 15 playoff games and was +15 with 24 penalty minutes. The Ducks acquired Noesen from Ottawa in July 2013 along with Jakob Silfverberg and a 1st round pick in 2014 in the trade for Bobby Ryan.

 

Talent Analysis

Although his offensive game is considered raw at this point, Noesen offers an interesting package of size, skating, competitiveness and feistiness. He presents a challenge to the opposition with his determined, high-energy style and was compared to Anaheim Ducks Corey Perry by Bryan Murray. “I’m a skilled power forward and I thrive off the physical side,” he said. “I want to make the team (next year). I will work my butt off and see how it goes.” What he needs to work on is gaining experience in all situations and polishing his offensive skills. He comes with leadership ability, delivers in the clutch and could develop into a highly-desirable second or third line NHL winger.

 

Future

Noesen was dealt by the Ottawa Senators to the Anaheim Ducks in the deal that sent Bobby Ryan to the Senators. His final season with Plymouth is now in the books and he will likely be a member of the Norfolk Admirals moving forward until he gets used to the professional game. If he starts well in Norfolk he could move into the NHL quickly as the Ducks right wing, particularly on the bottom lines, is completely up for grabs at this point.

The future of the Ottawa Senators looks bright. The Senators are considered to have one of the better pools of young talent in the NHL and, while some top draftees have recently cemented themselves on the Ottawa roster, most notably Erik Karlsson and Jared Cowen, there are many prospects on the verge of becoming solid NHL contributors in the near future. The club has quality and various skill-sets in all positions and has worked to draft where they previously had weak depth.

With a surprise appearance in the Stanley Cup playoffs in 2011-12, the Ottawa Senators' rebuilding blueprint is starting to show signs of success. Competition for roster spots and ice time this coming season should be fierce as Jakob Silfverberg, Mark Borowiecki, and Jim O'Brien appear targeted to claim roster spots in Ottawa. Other prospects such as Mika Zibanejad and Robin Lehner should also push for full time spots in the NHL.

The 2011-12 Ottawa Senators put together an impressive 41-win, 92-point season to finish in eighth place in the NHL Eastern Conference and qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In a season marked by third period comeback wins, they took the New York Rangers to the limit in the first round, eventually losing in seven games.

As an organization, the Ottawa Senators were able to gain invaluable experience during the recent playoff season. The NHL club exceeded most predictions and made the playoffs in what was supposed to be a rebuilding season. Many observers credited a portion of their success to a core group of young players who played a major role in the Binghamton Senators championship run in the 2010-11 AHL playoffs.

The Ottawa Senators' inaugural prospect award winners are a telling mix of talent at varying stages of readiness, with as many as four players expected to make a push for an NHL roster spot next season. Of the recipients, up to eight could be in the professional ranks by October, a good reflection of the commitment the organization has made to build from within. Noticeably conspicuous by his absence, top ranked prospect Mika Zibanejad received serious consideration in four of these categories.
