Thanks to multiple graduations, rich development and a bountiful turn at the draft table, the Ottawa Senators top 20 list features a number of fresh faces. And the organization’s future is suddenly ripe with potential, despite seeming hopeless and bleak just six months ago. Read more»

The Ottawa Senators have a storied knack for finding top talent at unexpected draft positions. Whether they’re grabbing two-time Norris winner Erik Karlsson at 15th overall, or digging Calder nominee Mark Stone up at 178th, the team’s scouts have always kept the depth chart stocked with dynamic young prospects—no matter where the team picks from. Still, that didn’t stop GM Bryan Murray from cashing in some assets to strengthen the team’s position at the 2015 NHL Draft. Read more»

Despite yet another gold medal at the U18 World Championship, this time around in Zug, Switzerland, the U.S. NTDP saw relatively few players taken at the 2015 NHL Draft. To a degree that can be accredited to having a number of key players on the team who will first be eligible for the 2016 draft, including no less than captain Luke Kunin, top scorer Auston Matthews, Matt Tkachuk, Clayton Keller, Chad Krys, and Jamie McAvoy. As many as three of these players are looking like surefire first round picks for next summer’s draft. Read more»

The Ottawa Senators have traded Robin Lehner and David Legwand to the Buffalo Sabres for the 21st overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. The trade ends weeks of speculation that began when the Senators signed Andrew Hammond to a three-year one-way contract on May 20th, a move that left the Sens with three NHL goaltenders. The Senators now own two 1st round selections in today’s draft, at 18th and 21st overall.

The Ottawa Senators have a knack for nabbing top-tier players outside of the top 10 at the NHL draft. This year, they will need it—the team does not pick until the 18th spot. Luckily, this year’s glut of earnest youngsters runs deep. Read more»
