Ottawa Senators 2012 NHL Entry Draft Recap - in depth look by THW's Margann Laurissa
"The Ottawa Senators have been riding high lately. Erik Karlsson has just been signed to a new seven-year contract worth $45.5 million, he has won his first career Norris Trophy and, next month, he is getting married. Additionally, captain Daniel Alfredsson won the King Clancy Award this year for his many philanthropic contributions to the Ottawa community. At the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, the Senators took some more steps toward their future, something that they have already begun with their three first round picks from 2011 (Mika Zibanejad, Stefan Noesen, Matt Puempel) and the acquisitions of Kyle Turris and Ben Bishop in trades this season. They were fortunate to be able to get the player they desperately wanted with their first-round pick in 2012. How about after that pick? Who are some of the other new players to come into the Nationís Capital? Let us look closer."
