Steve Larouche C 1994-1995
Born in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec in 1971, Larouche was drafted 41st overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1989. An offensive star in junior, he played four seasons in the QMJHL and led the Chicoutimi Saguenéens in goals, assists, and points, on the way to winning the 1991 Memorial Cup. Despite his offensive skills, Larouche had trouble breaking into the NHL because of his size. He signed with the Senators ahead of the 1994-1995 season, but because of the lockout found himself back in the AHL, but would get a shot with the Sens at the end of the season. He was traded to the New York Rangers in the offseason for Jean-Yves Roy. He played eight games in the NHL in 1995-1996 and spent the rest of his career playing in IHL, Germany, and Finland. Since then he has spent some time in the LNAH and has done some minor hockey coaching.
Mark Borowiecki D 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014
Born in Kanata, Ontario in 1989, Borowiecki was drafted 139th overall by the Ottawa Senators in 2008. After spending two season with the Smith Falls Bears of the CJHL, he attended Clarkson University for three seasons. He joined the Binghamton Senators in 2010-2011 and was a member of the 2011 Calder Cup team. Borowiecki made his NHL debut in 2011-2012, playing two games with the Senators. He spent the majority of the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 seasons with Bingo, but also played 19 games at the NHL level. Borowiecki's one-way deal kicks in this season, likely his best shot at earning a permanent spot at the NHL level.
Best #74: Steve Larouche
I suspect Borowiecki will overtake him if he ends up spending a season or two with the Sens, but right now it's hard to overlook Larouche's blistering offensive numbers.
