Senators News: September 20th

-The Binghamton Senators released their training camp roster (camp beginning September 27th).  Along with all the expected players there are some unsigned invitees: Scott Greenham (G), Daniel New (D), Jack Downing (C/RW), and Brad Peltz (LW).  New and Downing are both listed incorrectly in the release (the former as a forward, the latter as a defenseman).  Brad Peltz (7-190/09) seems to have left Yale (NCAA) early to try and turn pro.  New attended the Sens development camp in 2010, while Greenham attended it in 2011; Downing played more than half this past season with Binghamton (47-9-8-17).  Stats: New (NCAA 36-2-12-14), Peltz (NCAA 9-1-0-1), and Greenham (NCAA 2.47 .905).  Greenham already has an ECHL contract in place (with Bakersfield), so is presumably attending in the hopes of a call-up to Binghamton should the occasion arise.  Both Peltz and New are looking for spots in Elmira.

Corey Pronman has listed his top-100 prospects and a few Sens made the list:
15. Mika Zibanejad
43. Cody Ceci
51. Jakob Silfverberg
70. Mark Stone
87. Shane Prince

Take it with a grain of salt, but all his Sens picks are conventional (including the trendy choice of Prince).  You take something like this and throw it into the hopper of other lists to get a sense of general opinions about Ottawa’s prospects.

-I applaud the OHL’s attempt to cut down on one-dimensional enforcers, although I don’t foresee the NHL adopting their policy in the near future.
