Ottawa Senators Prospect Update - January 11th

It’s mostly still quiet around these parts

Prospect Team of the Week:


Jakov Novak

After some cold stretches in October in November, getting acclimated to his new surroundings, Novak seems to have hit his stride and he has six points in his last six games played with the Huskies, including two goals. Novak also continues to average just under two shots per game. Reminder: his signing rights expire this summer.

Roby Järventie

After the disappointment of getting in just one game at the World Juniors due to COVID, Järventie has gone off with six points and 12 shots in four games back in the AHL. Easily his most dominant stretch since coming to North America, Sens fans have finally started to see the full potential of the former second-rounder.

Egor Sokolov

Järventie’s draft-mate and fellow winger, Sokolov already has four points and eight shots in four games with Belleville in 2022. You can see his and Järventie’s goals in the highlights from their last game here:


Jake Sanderson

Much like Järventie, Sanderson likely feels like he left some business unfinished at the WJC before the tournament came to a grinding halt. Sanderson could, however, get quite the consolation prize in the form of an invite to the Olympics with team USA now that the NHL has withdrawn its players (unless those get canceled too! (it could happen!)). Sanderson has three points in two games since returning to North Dakota.

Olle Alsing

I thought about giving this spot to Maxence Guenette (four assists and four shots in his last four games) or Lassi Thomson (four shots last week) as each had one assist in two games played since the last update, but Alsing (even as a 25-year-old and barely a prospect) stole the show with the save below, and how often do I highlight actual defensive plays from defenders in these summaries?


Mads Søgaard

Søgaard didn’t have a lot in the way of competition with Filip Gustavsson inactive, Kevin Mandolese getting the hook, and Leevi Meriläinen getting shelled in a rare loss for Kingston. Søgaard lost his start last week as he faced a barrage of 37 shots but wrangled a win in relief of Mandolese on the back-half of their weekend series against Springfield in that wild 7-5 contest (highlights above).

Silver Linings:

  • In Sweden, Oliver Johansson has returned to Timra’s junior team after failing to find his place with the pro team. While the experience in the SHL should bode well for Johansson’s development, I quite enjoy seeing him racking up points again.
  • After spending the season to date in Belleville as an amateur, Philippe Daoust will return to the QMJHL—just not with Moncton. The Wildcats traded Daoust to Thomas Chabot’s old squad, the Sea Dogs, who will host the Memorial Cup this year. The Senators will have to offer Daoust a contract this summer to retain his rights./
  • Joining the parade of Sens prospects traded this season, Hamilton has traded Chandler Romeo to Sarnia./
  • Speaking of Sens prospects who got a change of scenery, Jonny Tychonick opened up recently about his setbacks with COVID and various injuries in this article. Like fellow 2018 draftee Novak, Tychonick will become a free agent should the Senators choose not to tender a contract this summer.
  • And in unsurprising but important news, the Sens have officially assigned Tyler Boucher to the Ottawa 67s. We’ve already discussed Boucher’s situation at length on the site so suffice to say, no one likes to see a first-round pick need a change of scenery midway through his first season with the organization but Boucher has a glorious opportunity here to redeem himself and win back some skeptical fans./
