2010-11: Shane Eiserman appeared in ten junior games with the Valley Junior Warriors and skated for St. John’s Prep as a freshman on a team that reached the Massachusetts Super Eight championship game. Eiserman scored 9 goals with 5 assists and 14 penalty minutes with the Warriors. He scored 24 goals with 27 assists during the high school season. St. John’s finished 18-6-1; falling to Malden Catholic 4-3 in overtime of the championship game. Eiserman committed to playing college hockey at New Hampshire in 2014-15.

2011-12: Eiserman skated for Cushing Academy as a sophomore. The second-leading scorer for the Penguins, he scored 18 goals with 26 assists in 30 games. Eiserman attended USA Hockey’s Select 17 Camp and was invited to join the National Team Development Camp in Ann Arbor in 2012-13. He was selected by Sherbrooke in the 11th round (184th overall) of the 2012 QMJHL Entry Draft.

2012-13: Eiserman spent most of his first season in Ann Arbor with the NTDP’s U18 squad and represented the USA on the silver medal-winning team at the 2013 U18 World Junior Championship in Sochi. He scored 10 goals with 11 assists and had 37 penalty minutes in 56 games with the NTDP U18 squad and scored 1 goal with 6 penalty minutes in six games for the U17 team. Eiserman had 1 assist in six games at the WJC.

2013-14: Eiserman left the NTDP to skate for the USHL’s Dubuque Fighting Saints and represented the USA in the 2013 U19 World Junior A Challenge. In his first 30 games with Dubuque he was +15 — scoring 9 goals with 14 assists— and was second on the Fighting Saints with 61 penalty minutes. In four games at the WJAC he scored 2 goals with 2 assists. Eiserman was ranked 45th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Ottawa in the fourth round (100th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

2014-15: Eiserman skated in 35 of 40 games for the University of New Hampshire as a 19-year-old freshman. He scored 4 goals with 11 assists and was +5 with 28 penalty minutes. The Wildcats finished eighth in Hockey East and reached the Hockey East tournament semifinals, falling to eventual champion Boston University, 4-1.

Talent Analysis

Eiserman is the prototypical hard-to-play-against power forward who uses his size and strength to create chances and has the skating ability to be effective on both ends of the ice. Eiserman relishes playing in tight spaces and along the boards and has a skill component to his game.


Committed to playing college hockey at New Hampshire since his freshman high school season, Eiserman should make an immediate impact when he joins the Wildcats in the fall. Eiserman's size and strength have allowed him to dominate smaller players at the prep school and junior levels but his skating ability, technical skills and competitiveness suggest he can be an effective two-way forward at the pro level as well.

The Ottawa Senators may not have any big names playing in the limelight of the OHL, but that doesn’t mean their system is in any trouble. Don’t let the team’s lack of Ontario-based prospects or AHL success fool you – much of the next big wave of talent will come from the NCAA and Sweden.

Of course, the team is no stranger to drafting overseas – a great deal of the modern team’s success can be attributed to scouting overseas. This year’s crop is no different, and once again the Senators boast a glut of Swedish prospects who have become larger assets than their middling draft positions indicate. Read more»

Prior to the NHL Draft, Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray possessed distinct, possibly incompatible priorities: trade Jason Spezza, and replace the 2014 first round pick which he dealt last summer in exchange for Bobby Ryan. The former happened days later in a deal that sent Spezza to the Dallas Stars, but the latter move never materialized.
