The further you get away from the first selection of a draft in any professional sport the less likely you are to get a player who makes a contribution to your professional club. While stories of stars being unearthed in the later rounds are certainly feel good moments — the Senators drafting Daniel Alfredsson at 133 in 1994, for instance — the fact of the matter is it's less likely to happen. Those stories are that much more remarkable because of the heavy odds against finding a true impact player at such a late juncture in the draft.

With the Senators currently slated to make four selections at the 2014 NHL Draft — 40th, 70th, 100th and 190th respectively — I thought it would be a fun project to take a look at some of the historical selections in those slots going back to the 1992 NHL Draft, which was the first featuring the then-reborn Senators.

The Ottawa Senators rookies will be making their return to London, Ont. and the Rookie Tournament at Budweiser Gardens this September. The 2014 edition of the tournament will be the second consecutive to be hosted in London.

The Senators will be one of four teams to take part in the tournament, joining the Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins and host Toronto Maple Leafs for the three day round robin tournament. In 2013 the Senators were the lone undefeated squad at the tournament, going 3-0-0.

Ottawa has either won the tournament outright or finished in a tie for first place in five consecutive Rookie Tournaments going back to 2008.

The full tournament schedule is as follows...

Sens TV had the opportunity to sit down with a handful of Senators players before they went their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to reflect on the year that was, look ahead to the future and get a sense of what's ahead for the guys.

Next up in this series is Cody Ceci. Ceci, Ottawa's 2012 first round pick, was recalled by the Senators to make his NHL debut on December 12 against the Buffalo Sabres. Just four days later in his third NHL game, he notched his first NHL goal — an overtime winner — against the St. Louis Blues and former Senators goaltender. At season's end, had played 49 NHL games and recorded three goals and nine points at 20 years old despite not being in the NHL conversation in training camp.

Ceci was a positive contributor for the Sens in all three zones during his rookie campaign with 51 per cent of shot attempts coming in favour of the Senators while he was on the ice. Not only that, but he earned a regular shift on the team's penalty kill and power play — playing over 25 per cent of the Sens' minutes both shorthanded and with the man advantage.

To recap his rookie season with the Sens, here's Cody Ceci one-on-one with Sens TV.

Next up in this series is Bobby Ryan. Ryan joined the Senators on July 5, 2013 after a trade with the Anaheim Ducks — the team he had spent his entire career with to that point. He developed chemistry with Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur to become a formidable trio and finished his season with 23 goals and 48 points in 70 games after being shut down early to repair a hernia he sustained in November. He recorded 25 points in his first 26 games.

Ryan was also a strong possession player this past season with 51 per cent of shot attempts coming for the Senators while he was on the ice. That margin came despite drawing some of the toughest matchups on the team with the Ryan-Turris-MacArthur line consistently facing opposing top lines in strength-on-strength battles.

To recap his first season with the Sens, here's Bobby Ryan one-on-one with Sens TV.

The Senators have had a special guest in the gym over the last couple of days as Ottawa's Jesse Levine, ATP World Tour pro and die hard Senators fan has been training with Sens strength and conditioning coach Chris Schwarz. Levine is currently in the midst of rehabbing after elbow surgery earlier this year and is poised to return to the court in the coming weeks.
