The newest addition to the Ottawa Senators is American winger Brady Tkachuk.

With the fourth overall selection in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, the Senators decided to pick up the Boston University forward coming off a solid freshman campaign that saw him post 31 points in 40 games.

Tkachuk was a key member of Team USA at the World Junior Championship, where he put up three goals and six assists in seven games.

Bob McKenzie had Tkachuk as his third ranked player for this year’s draft.
