Ottawa Senators Prospect Update - March 22nd

Post-trade deadline edition

Ottawa Senators Prospect Team of the Week:


Oliver Johansson

Look I don’t want to suggest the the reclamation of Ottawa’s 2021 draft class depends entirely on Johansson at this point but on some weeks—yeesh. In all fairness, Zack Ostapchuk and Carson Latimer have had some good weeks and even Chandler Romeo has caught my attention once or twice but as those very early reports suggested, Johansson likely becomes the cornerstone of this draft class for the Sens (prove me wrong Tyler Boucher!). He added three more goals, an assist, and seven shots this past week.

Philippe Daoust

Don’t look now but Thomas Chabot’s (and Mathieu Joseph’s) former team has gone 9-0-1 in their last ten and Daoust contributed with three goals, an assist, and six shots this past week. Now through almost 20 games, Daoust’s streak lives on having taken just one minor penalty. This dude could have the best Lady Byng vibes in Ottawa since Alfie.

Roby Järventie

A goal, an assist, and four shots doesn’t scream “team of the week” but a lot of Senators prospects underperformed or have sustained injuries so this will have to suffice. It still feels like Järventie has another gear to his game to unlock but it also feels like it’ll be worth the wait based on the flashes we’ve seen.


Jonathan Aspirot

Forever an unsung hero of Belleville’s blueline and a dark horse in the Senators’ system, Aspirot has put together a respectable campaign despite multiple injuries. Aspirot scored in consecutive games this past week. Highlights (including his goal against Hartford) here:

Maxence Guenette

After missing timeearlier in the season, Guenette now has 40 games under his belt and has become more of a central cog in Belleville’s defensive structure. I should also note that Guenette (a defender!) still has just four(!) penalty minutes on the season. Occaisionally he puts his offensive skills on display as he did on Sunday with a goal and an assist against Syracuse. Highlights:


Mads Søgaard

If the B Sens intend to pass the likes of Laval, Toronto, and Syracuse in the standings then they’ll likely have to do so on the shoulder of Søgaard. Despite his struggles at times this season, he still looks like the best goaltender in the system going forward. He had a win and and overtime loss this week and played especially well last Friday stopping 36 of 38 against Hershey. Highlights here:
