Ottawa Senators Prospect Update - April 19th

It’s goalie week why not

With both regular and post-seasons winding down around the hockey world, we have less and less of a prospect pool to work with when the time comes to select our team of the week. While I would like to say some of Ottawa’s defensive prospects had stand-out weeks, I don’t see enough to work with so this week we get three forwards and three goalies instead. Look at it this way, at least all of Ottawa’s healthy netminding prospects have played their best hockey when it matters most—the playoff push (remember when we used to have those in Ottawa?!).

Prospect Team of the Week


After a mid-season trade from Edmonton to Prince Albert that pumped the brakes on Carson Latimer’s playoff aspirations for this season, the Raiders have snuck in to the WHL’s post-season. Latimer won’t get to face-off against his old team in the first round but at least we’ll get a few extra games to appreciate how well Latimer has thrived since said trade. Latimer ended his regular season on a high note with two goals, two assists, and nine shots in his last two games. He’ll start his post-season this Friday in Winnipeg.

Zack Ostapchuk and his Vancouver Giants have also snuck in as an eighth-seed in the WHL and will also commence his quest on Friday, in Everett. Ostapchuk had two goals on 12 shots in his last three games of the regular season.

Viktor Lodin has started to find his groove in North America with two goals, an assist, and four shots in his second week in Belleville (and not a moment too soon for a BSens team fighting tooth and nail for a post-season berth). Belleville won all four games this week to jump into the eighth spot in the east (Toronto sits four points back with two games in hand).


Back in junior hockey, Leevi Meriläinen and the Frontenacs will start their post-season on Friday at home against Oshawa. Meriläinen  finished the regular season tied for second in the OHL in wins and while his regular season save percentage of 89.1 doesn’t exactly look sterling, he’ll have an opportunity to make a statement in the playoffs. He ended his regular season well with just one goal allowed on 24 shots in his final game before the playoffs.

Mads Søgaard, fresh off some impressive first NHL minutes has made his contributions to Belleville’s playoff push winning both of his games this past week and allowing just one goal in each. Of note, he stopped 45 of 46 yesterday against Laval in a crucial game for the BSens.

Filip Gustavsson, despite some rough nights in Ottawa this season, has put together a strong campaign in Belleville once again and this week he won both of his games including a 25-save shutout against Hartford.
