Ottawa Senators‘ 2nd round pick in the 2011 draft (#61 overall), rookie left wing Shane Prince(18) had himself a good first pro season, 18 goals and 17 assists in 65 AHL games for minor league affiliate Binghamton Senators and added another marker in three playoff contests.
He absolutely exploded in his last two seasons in juniors with Ottawa 67’s notching basically a point and a half per game.
At 5’11” 189 lbs., he’s not exactly small but never really plays a big game and more than anything seems to slip almost unnoticed into the open areas to come up with scoring opportunities.
He has a three year entry level deal that keeps him in the system through 2015.
The 20-year is currently on recall with the parent club serving as one of the “black aces” playoffs’ practice squad.
He’s likely due an NHL look in his sophomore season.
