Ottawa Senators Prospect Update - February 22nd

All the teams played over the (long) weekend

With parts of Canada getting the day off on Monday, we got a bonus AHL game this weekend and several extra OHL and WHL games to pad the stats. So, how did Ottawa’s prospects fare this past week?

Team of the Week


Ridly Greig

In seven games in February, Greig has four goals, eight assists, 25 shots, and and 25 penalty minutes. I cannot imagine a more Ridly-Greig-esque statline than that. For all the time missed this season, Greig never seems to stay off the scoresheet for long.

Phillipe Daoust

Since his return to the QMJHL, Daoust has now had three multi-point games including a hat trick last Friday. Even if he can’t maintain this current shooting percentage forever, Daoust generates tonnes of shots, wins faceoffs, and stays out of the box. Suffice to say, I really hope he gets a contract this summer.

Egor Sokolov

When the Sens drafted Sokolov, we kinda knew based on his scouting report that he would need time to get his skating up to the professional level, and I can admit as I felt as impatient as anyone waiting for him to put it together. At this point, Sokolov seems to have figured it out. With ten points in nine games in February, Sokolov has taken over as the catalyst of Belleville’s offence. Good thing I stayed patient.


Erik Brännström

The counting stats still elude him (save for that two-assist game last Tuesday), and he had some penalty trouble against Buffalo, but things still seem to have trended up for Brännström of late. He’s played top-pairing minutes in the abcence of Thomas Chabot and while the fancy numbers like corsi and expected goals took a bit of a hit in that expanded role, Brännström looked like the right defender for the job for the most part. His sub-six on-ice shooting percentage won’t last forever. The points will follow and Brännström will reward the organization for their faith in him. Brännström now ranks fourth, surpassing Nikita Zaitsev, in ATOI among Ottawa Senators defenders.

Lassi Thomson

Among those who seem to have really found another gear since their stints in Ottawa, Thomson has taken over on the Belleville blueline. Since the calendar flipped to 2022, Thomson has gone nearly point-per-game with eleven in twelve (including two multi-point games this past week).


Filip Gustavsson

In keeping with the theme of the season to date, we had a mixed bag of goaltending results this week. The bad games mostly balanced out the good ones with the exception of Gustavsson who didn’t even get any wins. He went a perfect 11/11 in a relief appearance on Monday for Belleville after playing maybe his best game of the season for Ottawa on Sunday. Gustavsson absolutely deserved a better fate but alas he can’t provide his own goal-support.

Silver Linings

  • Tyler Kleven has made the most of his expanded role in the abcence of Jake Sanderson, including this goal on Friday:/
  • It feels like Jakov Novak has found his place with Northeastern after a slow start (by his standards). He scored again on Saturday:/
  • Tyler Boucher must have felt the weight of the world come off his shoulders with his first OHL goal:/
  • Another player bitten by the low shooting percentage bug, Zack Ostapchuk has finally started seeing some pucks go in this season:/
  • And finally, Carson Latimer continues to reap the benefits of his trade to Prince Albert earlier this season:/
