Inside the Senate will be taking a look at 40 prospects ahead of the Entry Draft on June 30. Up next is Ryan Hartman...

Any teams looking to fill their system with guys who are “hard to play against” will want to take a long look at Plymouth Whalers forward Ryan Hartman.

Hartman is a pesky player who brings some offensive punch to his game as well. In his first OHL season with the Whalers he recorded 60 points in 56 games, and had 120 PIMs to his credit as well. As a member of the Team USA World Juniors team, Hartman had three points in seven games to go with 16 PIMs en route to a gold medal.

June 20th will ultimately go down as one of the more significant days in Sens history thanks to Erik Karlsson.

Not only was Erik drafted 15th overall on June 20, 2008; he captured his first career Norris Trophy on June 20, 2012. In many ways, it's reminiscent of Paul MacLean winning his first Jack Adams two years to the day after he was hired as Sens coach.

Rule of thumb from here on out: The more overlap between bringing someone into the organization and award shows, the better.

Inside the Senate will be taking a look at 40 prospects ahead of the Entry Draft on June 30. Up next is Jacob De La Rose...

The old adage says, “better safe than sorry” and if you’re looking for safe in 2013, Jacob De La Rose is your man.

De La Rose isn’t a big point producer, as evidenced by his 12 points in 38 games for Leksand in the Allsvenskan this past season. At the World Juniors, De La Rose was held off of the scoresheet altogether in six games, though he did record four points in 15 games for the Swedish U20 team in 2012-13. To his credit, however, he was a key cog of a Leksand team that won SEL promotion and a Swedish junior team that captured a silver medal.

Inside the Senate will be taking a look at 40 prospects ahead of the Entry Draft on June 30. Up next is Frederik Gauthier...

Every draft has their eye-popping physical specimens and in 2013 they don’t come much bigger than Rimouski’s Frederik Gauthier.

At 6-foot-5, 210 pounds the Oceanic centreman is an imposing player down the middle. He was a solid offensive performer in 2012-13, recording just under a point-per-game -- 60 points in 62 games -- before adding another two in six playoff games. Gauthier also appeared as part of Team Canada’s World U-18 squad in Sochi and posted four points in seven games on the big ice.

He took some time after the formal proceedings to speak with the media about the latest Sens news.

We’re on to Memorable Monday number three here at Inside the Senate and today we will be taking a look at two of the best saves of the season, which happened to come in the same game and happened to come against the same player.

Moments like these are why we watch.

Inside the Senate will be taking a look at 40 prospects ahead of the Entry Draft on June 30. Up next is Valentin Zykov...

There are always questions when a European player comes to North America and plays on the smaller ice. Valentin Zykov erased those questions very quickly.

When Zykov joined the Baie-Comeau Drakkar at the beginning of this season, not much was expected of him offensively. A year ago he recorded 11 points and 105 penalty minutes in 52 games with CSKA Moscow’s junior circuit team. As it turns out, the small ice may be just the thing Zykov needed to launch his stock. In his first QMJHL season, Zykov led all rookies in scoring with 40 goals and 35 assists, with another 10 goals and nine assists in 19 playoff games. His efforts earned him both QMJHL and CHL rookie of the year honours.

Inside the Senate will be taking a look at 40 prospects ahead of the Entry Draft on June 30. Up next is J.T. Compher...

In each draft class there a handful of can-do-it-all players and, in 2013, you’d be hard pressed to find a player who fits that mould better than J.T. Compher.

Compher was the captain of the US NTDP in 2012-13 and established himself as a key cog and clear leader of the team. In 21 USHL games this past season, Compher was a point-per-game player for the team, registering 24 in 21 games. He continued his solid play for the USA in the World U18 tournament where he put up three goals and four assists in seven games en route to a silver medal.
