TSP: Ottawa Senators Prospects

TSP: Ottawa Senators Prospects

Welcome to the 2019 Top Shelf Prospects series. As we go through the Summer of 2019 LWOH will be featuring a team-by-team look at the top prospects in the NHL.

A big thank you to Andrew for his reporting!) The Brampton Beast of the ECHL held a press conference today to make a few announcements.

In 2017-18, they were the affiliate of the Canadiens, but the Sens lacked an ECHL team so loaned players to the Beast. In 2018-19, the Sens were unveiled as...
