The Ottawa Senators released their 2017 development camp roster, made up of Sens prospects as well as a handful of invitees. The camp will do training on and off the ice, and will also include some team building activities. It’s a good time for Sens fans to witness some players that we don’t often get to see, as the annual evening scrimmage will be taking place June 29th at the Kanata Recreation Complex, open to the public.
Ben Harpur, Chris Driedger, Patrick Sieloff and Vincent Dunn, will all not be in attendance, for varying reasons. Harpur is seen highly by management, and may be seen as having ‘graduated’ despite being younger than others at the camp. Chris Driedger is probably in a similar boat, considering it’s been five years since he was drafted (the same applies to Sieloff). Vincent Dunn is likely no longer seen as part of the organization (despite being signed for another year), as he had minimal results last season in the ECHL.
Also of note is that four of the Sens’ 2017 draft picks, chosen just days ago, will be in attendance for the camp.
Here are the full rosters:
Goalies: Joel Daccord, Marcus Hogberg, Jordan Hollett, Hayden Lavigne*
Defencemen: Charles-David Beaudoin*, Thomas Chabot, Cody Donaghey, Andreas Englund, Macoy Erkamps, Miles Gendron, Christian Jaros, Maxime Lajoie, T.J. Melancon*, Jordan Murray*, Brayden Pachal*, Andrew Peski*, Kelly Summers, Christian Wolanin
Forwards: Filip Ahl, Michael Babcock*, Drake Batherson, Shane Bowers, Logan Brown, Todd Burgess, Filip Chlapik, Shane Eiserman, Alex Formenton, Gabriel Gagne, Matteo Gennaro*, Jake Gaudet*, Parker Kelly*, Cole Maier*, Nick Master*, Markus Nurmi, Nick Paul, Francis Perron, Carl Persson*, Jack Rodewald, Jordan Topping*, Colin White
