Ottawa Senators Prospect Update - December 13th

Prospect Team of the Week

Forwards

Angus Crookshank

Crookshank continues to establish himself at the professional level in his first proper AHL season. With two goals, an assist, and five shots this past week, Crookshank further solidified his role as one of the offensive catalysts for Belleville. Four-plus years removed from the NHL draft, I really hope Crookshank gets a chance to play in Ottawa before the end of this season.

Viktor Lodin

A very bittersweet entry here as Lodin added his eighth point through twelve games for the BSens before succumbing to yet another injury for an already depleted Belleville squad (Jonathan Aspirot, Jacob Bernard-Docker, Philippe Daoust, Ridly Greig, Roby Järventie, and Lodin all having missed at least a game this week). This injury looked pretty scary and the team expects Lodin to miss weeks at least.

Egor Sokolov

The undisputed leader of Belleville’s offence this season, Sokolov has really diversified his portfolio as a playmaker with four more assists this past week. Sokolov could set new personal bests in assists and points this season, and yes he still has his scoring touch:

Defence

Tyler Kleven

UND has had an up-and-down season so far and fallen out of the top-20 in the national rankings but Kleven has started to warm up at the right time and I would expect some better hockey from the Fighting Hawks in the new year. The lanky defender led by example this week with two assists, six shots, and this nice little shootout bonus:

Maxence Guenette

I wish I had some multimedia content to add here but alas, you’ll have to take my word. With four more assists and ten shots in three games this past week, Guenette now ranks in the top-15 among AHL defenders in assists, points, and shots. My hot take: Guenette has seriously started to nip at the the heels of Lassi Thomson. And that’s no knock on Lassi who has had a perfectly fine season in his own right.

Goaltender

Mads Søgaard

Among the myriad injuries suffered by the Belleville Senators (and the Ottawa Senators for that matter) early this season, Søgaard seemingly had no luck this fall. With the BSens in desperate need of stability both on defence and in the crease, Søgaard has found his rhythm of late, resembling the dominant netminder we’ve come to expect in recent years. I should also note here that Belleville assigned Kevin Mandolese to ECHL Allen this past week and Mandolese played admirably in two games. Kevin Reidler continues righting the proverbial ship in the Swedish junior league getting his save percentage above 90 before the break. In keeping with the shootout theme:
