Breakfast call \'a thrill\' for Wideman
Defenceman Chris Wideman is 'very excited' about being a part of the future of the Ottawa Senators organization.
What a way for Chris Wideman to start his day.

Back on June 27, the 19-year-old St. Louis native was sitting down for a leisurely breakfast with some friends when he received the call every aspiring young hockey player dreams about.

“It happened so quick and so fast and it was a thrill,” Wideman said of getting the word from Senators assistant general manager Tim Murray that Ottawa was about to make him its fourth-round pick (100th overall) in 2009 NHL Entry Draft in Montreal.

“I’m very, very excited to be here.”

That might also have summed up his freshman season at Miami (Ohio) University. In April, Wideman and the RedHawks made a stunning run to the championship game of the NCAA Frozen Four at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. But Miami fell to the Boston University Terriers 4-3 in overtime, dashing its hopes for a first NCAA title in any sport.

“It’s been amazing. It’s exactly where I want to be,” said Wideman of his college life so far. “It’s close enough to home that my parents (Julie and Gary) can come watch.

"My little brother just committed (to go) there as well, so we’re going to be playing together for a couple of years. It’s just been perfect. I couldn’t ask for anything else.”
