The left shot defender from Whitefish, Montana is the latest member of the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks to join the Senators pipeline. After spending the past two seasons with the US National Development Program, Sanderson joins the Senators organizations as one of the top ranked defenders in the 2020 draft.
