André Benoit

Hi new here and I just wanted to share something with you all. It appears that André Benoit might be back with the Sens this year. The former Baby Sens assistant will sign a new contract on July 1st (or a bit after)

Coming out of a year in Russia, in 53 games, he had 5 goals and 12 assists with 34 PIM and a plus 1.

From what I have heard he did not enjoyed his year there. especially at the start of the season when the Lokomotiv team plane crashed. That really worried him.


But I expect it to be a two way contract. I guess the signing was an easy choice for Benoit. First, He's a native of St-Albert. (where they have the best cheese curds ) Second, Rick Wamsley, the former goalie coach of the Sens and now the new Baby Sens head coach is actually his father in law.

With all that said I, personally think Benoit can play in the NHL full time as a 6th D. Can't be worse than Gilroy, He can play on the point on the second unit of the powerplay.

The only true thing about the post.

Benoit is not an NHL player

I'm no informat just close of THAT situation, I'm no Senschirp and I'm not a Eklund lol just a fan that knows that info is 100% true and wanted to pass it along.<

And Benoit is good enough to play in NHL. Mostly what will happen is he will be the call up guy.

I think it'd be great to pick him back up for Bingo, but not for the NHL roster.

Maybe but if Patty Wier goes back to Bingo he needs to be the go to offensive D. Cause he's not making the NHL as a defensive specialist. He needs to be tested and he needs ice time to develop. I don't want Benoit to take that away from him.

I imagine WIE will be the Sens focus on D this year. If not he's gonna fade away, which I hope not. But I assume André will play a couple of game in the NHL. But who would u rather have Benoit or Gilroy? To me they are similar but I think André is better on the hockey vision side, he's pretty good on the PP. If the Sens give him a chance like a solid 10 games, maybe he will impress you guys like he impresses me. I seen him play since he is young and always know he would make it to the NHL one day. I hope this year is the one

His Idol was Scott Stevens ans his dream was to win the Stanley cup with the Senators!!

Lets hope he is right

Well good luck to him. It'll keep getting harder to crack the NHL roster especially with additions like Ceci, but wish no ill will.

I dont know Ceci at all, just know he's really good but I dont think he will make the team?? But andré will be the call up guy for the Sens I guess. I just wish the best for him been through alot. Especially when his brother committed suicide (R.I.P. Luc )

I just hope he can play solid in camp and get a shot at it, he deserves it.

He was born in 1984, so odds are he would have started primary at 1988-1989....so either he was held back a few years or your story doesn't add up since the Senators were not back in the NHL.

Was ridiculous in Kitchener back in the day (All-time leading points for a Defenseman among names like McInnis and Iafrate.)

Well in that region primary school goes up to grade 8 back then anyway. So in theory he was in primary school til 1997ish

I trust you Informat. This is good news if true. A lot of question marks on our d right now. Wouldn't be surprised to see a guy like Benoit steal the first callup or even 6-7 D spot.

Look i just wanted to give a heads up to Sens fan because if a Sens fan knows something then I would like to know. If you dont believe me fine. I dont care lol. I dont make stuff up. And btw your not very good in math LOL

GO SENS GO

and yes he was INSANE in kitchener I just hope he can get back that confidence!!!!!!
Even tho the NHL is at another level, and funny thong is that he never got drafted lol reason: wasnt tall enough. So I'm assuming that "in that time" if Erik Karlsson would be the same age as him, he wouldnt have been drafted either.
