If you missed our stats primer, you can get caught up on everything you need to know HERE

After a season in which he centered the trio that became the team's de facto top line for prolonged stretches, attention will shift to Kyle Turris to become the Senators' number one centre in title and play this season.

Injuries during the lockout shortened 2013 campaign gave Turris a taste of what it meant to shoulder the load up front, while instant chemistry with Clarke MacArthur and, later on, Bobby Ryan, gave the team a formidable trio with all three finishing amongst the Sens' top five scorers one season later.

The departure of Jason Spezza will mean there is no doubt as to which centre will steer the ship for the Sens up front. While many "Is Turris Ready?" articles are popping up across the hockey world, both the stats and his career arc seem to confirm that he's already there.

Let's take a look...

Ever wonder what a day at an NHL development camp is like for a prospect? Here's your chance to get a better look. The Sens run a jam-paced development camp for their prospects each summer with opportunities to take in various seminars on topics ranging from nutrition to sports psychology, workout sessions led by Chris Schwarz and his strength and conditioning team, talks from the NHL coaching staff and management, as well as on-ice sessions to grow their game and team building events that are a little more light-hearted.

In sum, it's a week loaded with events that give a player the chance to add to his toolbox while on the path to what is ideally a career in the NHL. While there are many different nuances in between the teams who run camps across the NHL, Ottawa's is designed to teach prospects how to be professionals.

To give you a look at a day in the life of Senators Development Camp, Sens TV took a day to follow 2013 first round pick Curtis Lazar from event to event. In part one of this series, you get a look at a morning at dev camp, complete with a nutrition seminar at breakfast, talk from Senators head coach Paul MacLean and off-ice workout at Canadian Tire Centre.

Take a look at a day in the life of Curtis Lazar at development camp...
