EP Rinkside 2023 NHL Prospect Pool Rankings: No. 28-ranked Ottawa Senators
The Ottawa Senators' prospect pipeline may not hold the same promise it once did, back when Tim Stützle, Jake Sanderson, and Shane Pinto were prominent features. However, any sense of disappointment regarding the organization's diminished ranking should be tempered.
The rationale behind their current position lies in the fact that the aforementioned prospects have successfully realized their potential, thereby establishing themselves as the team's core. This achievement underscores the effectiveness of the organization's scouting personnel, who adeptly identified and capitalized on crucial selections in recent years. This, ultimately, is the pivotal aspect.
Furthermore, it is essential to note that the farm system is far from barren. Noteworthy figures like Ridly Greig are on an upward trajectory within the Senators' setup. Additionally, Tyler Kleven demonstrated his capacity as a legitimate NHL player during his tenure with the team in the previous season. Moreover, their stable boasts a plethora of intriguing prospects at the B or C level. In fact, there are so many such prospects that our writeups had to extend beyond the customary top-12 coverage typically allotted to most teams.
