Ottawa Senators’ Development Camp

The Ottawa Senators have released their Development Camp (June 28-July 4) roster and schedule (http://senators.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=69924) and unfortunately Nikita Filatov was not able to come–it’s not a surprise, given that he was traded on Saturday [Tuesday update: Filatov is now expected to arrive and participate, possibly as soon as Wednesday].  Unlike in past years, there are very few undrafted players invited to the camp, but there are points of interest.

This will be the first camp for all the new draftees along with the following: high-end prospect David Rundblad; FA signee’s Pat Cannone (NCAA), Stephane Da Costa (NCAA), and Wacey Hamiltion (WHL).  A complete shock is the inclusion of long-forgotten 2004 pick Kirill Lyamin (who has a two year deal with Avangard Omsk).  Unlike the surprising inclusion of Ruslan Bashkirov last year, it’s difficult to understand why Lyamin has come to Ottawa.  Bashkirov was without a contract and had barely played the previous three seasons, so his agent arranged for his inclusion (which may have helped him land a contract in the VHL–the tier below the KHL).  Lyamin has spent his career in Russia where his progression has as a big, shutdown defenceman has stalled, but I’ve heard no rumblings of him wanting to leave.  It will be interesting to hear his story as the camp unfolds [Tuesday update: Tim Murray was interviewed on the Team 1200 and said Lyamin's agent had asked if he could be included at camp].  The only undrafted invites are goaltenders: Scott Greenham (NCAA), Adam Janecyk (NCAA), and Matt O’Connor (USHL).  Janecyk is the son of Sens scout Bob Janecyk.  Absent from the camp (but eligible) are Robin Lehner, Jim O’Brien, Eric Gryba, Craig Schira, and Michael Sdao.

The camp is open to the public and I encourage fans to go–it’s a lot of fun.  I’ve included information about all the players below.
