Mika Zibanejad leads talented group of Ottawa Senators prospects
With a surprise appearance in the Stanley Cup playoffs in 2011-12, the Ottawa Senators' rebuilding blueprint is starting to show signs of success. Competition for roster spots and ice time this coming season should be fierce as Jakob Silfverberg, Mark Borowiecki, and Jim O'Brien appear targeted to claim roster spots in Ottawa. Other prospects such as Mika Zibanejad and Robin Lehner should also push for full time spots in the NHL.
Besides their numerous prospects playing at the professional level, the Senators have a number of good players sprinkled among the CHL and the NCAA.
