A Sanderson Update, A Kneeling Protest, A League Delay and More

Photo by Jeff Vinnick/NHLI via It’s the Thursday edition of Links, News and Notes! As we wait for the NHL to start, we take a look at how our prospects are doing around other leagues as well as get an update about when our very own league should grace us back with a return. Without further introduction, this week’s edition of the Thursday links. Jake Sanderson may be one of the most debated top-10 picks in recent Ottawa Senators history and unfortunately it may be a while before we see the true potential of Sanderson. However, Grand Folks Herald journalist Brad...

WARREN: Senators prospect Bernard-Docker takes stand against racism

Some moments of silence speak louder than others in our current hockey world. Wednesday brought another day of quiet in the NHL/NHLPA impasse, and Canada’s best and brightest teenage talent remained under quarantine conditions in Red Deer, Alta. Then there was the bold statement from top Ottawa Senators prospect Jacob Bernard-Docker in Omaha, Neb., of all places. ...

These words can inspire confidence for a certain type of person, but it’s not exactly what you want to hear first about a player drafted with a first-round pick in a draft pegged as one of the deepest in recent memory. “A team-leading, above a point-per-game forward in the WHL despite being one of the draft’s youngest players while playing against top competition”...

Paul Maclean Was Underrated

Paul Maclean Was Underrated

Photo by Jana Chytilova/Freestyle Photography/ The ‘Stache deserves recognition as a standout among coaches in Ottawa Senators history. When discussing the most memorable Ottawa Senators moments of the 2010s, many fans will go straight to either the magical Hamburglar run of 2015 or their incredibly gutsy run to the 2017 Eastern Conference Final. However, while the organization was never quite able to capitalize on the success of Erik Karlsson, there was still plenty of excitement sprinkled throughout the first half of the decade; and at the centre of many of those...

GARRIOCH: Senators' prospect Jacob Bernard-Docker looking forward to getting UND season started

Finally, the wait is about to end for Jacob Bernard-Docker and his teammates at the University of North Dakota. It’s been nearly nine months since one of the Ottawa Senators’ top prospects on defence suited up for a game with the Fighting Hawks, but the No. 26 overall selection in the 2018 National Hockey League draft will get his chance when North Dakota faces Miami of Ohio on Wednesday at Baxter Arena in Omaha, Neb. ...

Filip Gustavsson (Reader Rank: 20, Last Year: 24) Hey, look at that: we agree! Again! After the readers and the staff were of the same mind on Christian Jaros, Filip Gustavsson has climbed four spots to 20th in the Top 25 Under 25 list for both the Silver Seven staff and its readers alike. When Gustavsson joined the Senators organization in 2018, there was a ton of hype surrounding the Skellefteå native. After all,...

Senators Long-Term Outlook: Right Wing

Photo by Jana Chytilova/Freestyle Photography/ Seeing what right wing will look like in 2020-21 and beyond Welcome back for Part Three of my Long-Term Outlook series. So far, I’ve taken a deep dive into both left wing and centre for the Ottawa Senators organization, and today I’ll be analyzing right wing. The objective of this mini-series is to analyze how the Senators might look at each position for the upcoming season, but also down the road. There will be two more entries after this piece that discuss defensemen and goalies. Right wing is certainly much thinner...

GARRIOCH: We're all hoping to get some clarity on the start of the NHL season this week

The calendar has turned to December and there’s no start date set for the 2020-21 NHL season. The longer the stalemate continues between the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association continues on issues that need to be settled to get the year under way the chances get less likely we’re going to see the Ottawa Senators back on the ice at the Canadian Tire Centre any time around Jan. 1.

Christian Jaros (Reader Rank: 21, Last Year: 11) It feels like Christian Jaros has been one breakthrough away from locking up a full-time spot with the Ottawa Senators for three seasons now. After being selected by the Sens in the 5th round of the 2015 draft, Jaros came over to North America at the start of the 2017-18 season. At the outset of that campaign, the team featured Erik Karlsson and Cody Ceci firmly entrenched at the top of the depth chart on...

Expectations on the Rise for the Senators in 2020-21

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Although they’ll be in the basement again, fans are expecting more from the Senators as soon as this season Double overtime in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Then three straight seasons of finishing in the bottom two of the NHL. As has been well documented over the past few years, Ottawa’s fall from grace was swift and left the fanbase hopeless. After trading not only Erik Karlsson in 2018 but then Mark Stone later that same season, that is when the fanbase felt its most apathetic. And how could you blame anyone for not...

GARRIOCH: Ottawa Senators' forward Austin Watson looking forward to a fresh start with rebuilding team

Austin Watson has a pretty quiet two weeks ahead of him. While many of his new Ottawa Senators’ teammates will be gearing up to be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign whenever it gets under way, the rugged forward and his family will be in self-isolation at their Ottawa home for the next 14 days after arriving in town from Nashville. ...

Austin Watson will pay tribute to a former member of the Senators when he pulls on the No. 16 jersey for the first time with his new team to start this season. Winger Brian McGrattan, who spent six years in the Ottawa organization and is open about his battles with alcoholism, has been a role model for the 28-year-old and when No. 51 was already occupied by centre Artem Anismov, ...

Egor Sokolov (Reader Rank: 24, Last Year: NR) It was a busy draft week for the Senators in early October, and Egor Sokolov is the first player of the bunch to make his debut on our Top 25 Under 25 list. He’s already etched in Sens history as their first Russian drafted in over a decade, going back to Ruslan Bashkirov in 2008. But while a second round pick might’ve been too rich of a draft slot in the eyes of most analysts, there’s still a lot to dissect with the...

GARRIOCH: Senators' defenceman Erik Brannstrom enjoying the chance to play overseas

Not all of the Ottawa Senators are spending their time skating and waiting. The voice of Erik Brannstrom came on the line Thursday afternoon from Langnau, Switzerland — located not far from Bern — and the Senators’ blueliner was more than enthusiastic about his time playing overseas. Loaned to the SC Langnau Tigers in the Swiss ‘A’ league by the Senators while waiting for the 2020-21 campaign to get...
