Sens TV with Andreas Englund

Sens TV sat down with a handful of Senators prospects during development camp to give fans a chance to get to know them a little bit better. Up first in this series is the first selection of Ottawa's 2014 draft, Andreas Englund.

Need a refresher on Andreas? Here's a rundown...

Sens regional scout Vaclav Burda on Englund:

First of all we were happy with what we did getting this guy. We see him being a supporting defensive guy among our blueliners. He's a big, strong guy, very competitive. We don't expect any offence but we really feel strongly he can bring strong defensively responsible play and penalty killing. They (opponents) will recognize him as a hard to play against guy. That's what we believe. Once he matures and gets stronger that's what he can bring on the ice, every game.

Sens assistant GM Pierre Dorion on Englund:

For us we feel we left this draft with a first round pick in Andreas Englund. I said it on the radio, I've been scouting for 20 years and I don't think we'll bring a higher character person into our organization. He brings a physical presence, I think his skills are underrated, I think the fans are going to love him once he plays for us whether it's in two, three, four years. I think we have someone who's really going to help our organization down the road...Every game that we saw him, especially in the second half, we saw someone that we thought had the qualities to be a matchup guy, play against the other teams top lines. Last year we drafted a kid by the name of Tobias Lindberg, we talked to him, they were on the same team and Tobias told us, "I hate practicing against this guy every day." That says something about this guy's character, we got an asset here that's really going to help us very soon. He's physically very strong, he can even get stronger. We say we want to bring character people into the organization, well, this guy is at the top of the list for us.

Englund on his game and joining the Senators on Draft Day:

It feels great, I've heard a lot about it as a younger guy. In Djurgardens where I play, a lot of guys have been drafted by the Ottawa Senators so I've heard a lot about it and it feels good to be a part of it...I would describe myself as a physical player, a tough player, a hard-working defenceman with good in-box play...I've looked up to Matthias Ohlund when he played. I think he's a great player.

Now that you're up to speed, check out Sens TV one-on-one with Andreas Englund.
