Ottawa Senators Prospect Team of the Week

Forwards

No stranger to this feature, Ridly Greig continues to drive the Wheat Kings’ offence and has climbed towards the top of the per-game leaderboards in the WHL. Greig outdid himself with two goals, five assists, and 20 shots in three games this week (only four penalty minutes though so someone might want to check on him and make sure he feels okay):

Philippe Daoust has also cemented his place among our forwards of the week since his transfer back to junior from AHL Belleville. He added three goals, three assists, and eleven shots to his totals in three games this week. Daoust also acts as the Lady Byng foil to Greig with just one minor penalty since joining his new team.

Extremely on-brand for Senators prospects, Viktor Lodin now has more PIM than games played on the season (other players to achieve this feat include Greig, Chandler Romeo, and Tyler Kleven). Lodin couldn’t miss if he tried last week, scoring thrice (and adding an assist) on 15 shots in four games:

Defence

Tyler Kleven hasn’t exactly had the offensive breakout I would have expected in his sophomore year with such an expanded role (especially in the abcence of Jake Sanderson) but at the same time, as one of North Dakota’s top defenders, he deserves credit for their team success as they finished the season, once again, atop the standings in the NCHC, and only fittingly, the dude from Fargo scored the overtime goal in the clinching game:

Coming into this season, I don’t think any prospect had more ground to make up than Jonathan Tychonick and while I don’t think he did enough this season to merit a contract in the summer, at least he finally started contributing on the scoresheet (two assists in two games this week). We can hope that all of his injury and illness trouble has resolved and he can play some meaningful hockey in Omaha’s postseason opening matchup against Western Michigan.

Goaltender

Filip Gustavsson didn’t have much competition this week as he alone managed a save percentage of 90 but he deserves some love for the logistical headache of getting recalled from Belleville last minute to join Ottawa on their southwestern road trip (of pain).

Silver Linings:

  • Bruce Garrioch reports that Jake Sanderson will return to the ice for the Fighting Hawks when the postseason starts this coming weekend.
  • Out west, 2021 draftees Carson Latimer and Zack Ostapchuk continue their efforts to make up for lost time earlier in the season when both players found offence difficult to come by:

  • And closer to home, overaged and undrafted respectively, Cole Reinhardt and Parker Kelly have found their grooves of late with the former hoping to follow in the footsteps of the latter and carve out a depth role in the NHL as a fourth-line/penalty kill type specialist:
