    Day 20 – Ottawa Senators

    After the 2010-2011 season, the Ottawa Senators changed direction and began looking more towards the future and stockpiled draft picks for the 2011 draft. With four selections in the first 61 picks the Sens quickly added depth to an already decent crop of prospects. After the Binghamton Senators won the 2011 Calder Cup, several players were promoted to the NHL Senators. This year the Sens have several more players on the cusp of demanding a full time NHL roster position and there simply are not enough spots for everyone. Healthy competition is a very good thing for any franchise, and most NHL teams would love to have the Senators dilemma. In Ottawa, the future is now!

    G - Robin Lehner, (SWE) Binghamton Senators

    6’3”, 200 lbs 20 years

    The 2010-2011 season was a disaster for the Ottawa Senators partly because of poor goaltending and injuries in that position. Neither Pascal Leclaire, nor Brian Elliott was able to carry the mail. As a result, Lehner was thrust into the NHL for eight games. His stats were modest, but he showed plenty of promise. Then he was instrumental for the Binghamton Calder Cup Championship win with a post- season record of 19-14-4 a 2.1 GAA, .939 save%, and three shutouts. Lehner was awarded the Jack Butterfield Trophy for the Calder Cup playoffs MVP. With workhorse starter Craig Anderson and Ben Bishop ahead of Lehner, expect Lehner to start more games in the AHL than the NHL again next season. Despite the team being patient with Lehner he is very confident to the point of being cocky. There is no questioning his ability, but his maturity has been called into question. Nevertheless he is the future starting goalie of this franchise and will assume the mantle as such as the team is coming of age.

    Projection: Franchise keeper
    Potential Upside: 35 wins
    ETA: 2013

    RW - Mark Stone, (CAN) Brandon Wheat Kings

    6’3”, 200 lbs, 19 years

    Ottawa drafted Stone in the 6th round of the 2010 draft with the 178th pick. It looks like the Sens found a real hidden gem with that pick. Perhaps he was overlooked so much at the draft because his skating skills were so poor, Ottawa drafted him because he had tremendous goal scoring abilities and size. You can practice and coach skating techniques and improve skating. You can’t teach goal scoring instincts or coach a player to grow bigger! Since being drafted his stock has skyrocketed! Last season he was named the team MVP, finished third in the WHL in scoring with 106 points, was named as a first team All-Star. This year he has continued to increase his stock as he finished second in WHL scoring with 123 points and lead the Canadian World Junior team in scoring with 10 points. Stone has the skills, size, and smarts to become a solid NHL power forward with tremendous fantasy value. He is a keeper!

    Projection: Top six forward

    Potential Upside: 50-70 points (Tim Kerr)
    ETA: Mid-late 2012-2013
