Sens recall Ottawa native Pageau



The Ottawa Senators recalled (another) rookie today as Jean-Gabriel Pageau will be joining the team from Binghamton. The 20-year-old is an Ottawa native playing in his first year of pro hockey with the Baby Sens.

From the official release:

In his first professional season, Pageau has recorded seven goals and 22 assists for 29 points in 69 games with the B-Sens. He has added 33 penalty minutes and has a plus-eight rating.

An Ottawa native, the 20-year-old Pageau was the Senators’ fourth-round pick (96th overall) in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Prior to turning professional, Pageau recorded 175 points (80 goals, 95 assists) and 67 penalty minutes in 175 career Quebec Major Junior Hockey League contests with the Gatineau Olympiques and Chicoutimi Saguenéens.

Pageau is a talented smaller player who plays a real two-way game. He has drawn comparisons to Philly's Claude Giroux in the past, but obviously those are premature for a 20-year-old who has yet to play an NHL game. It remains to be seen how he will fare.

What we do know, though, is he will play the full rink for the Sens and brings quite a bit of skill with him. His work ethic is also off the charts on the ice and has been used in a type of depth checking role, which has caused his offensive production to tail off from his QMJHL rates.
