Prospects Corner: Taking on the best
Senators prospect Jeff Costello of the USHL's Cedar Rapids RoughRiders has been named to the American team for the World Junior A Challenge, Nov. 1-8 in Summerside, P.E.I.
Jeff Costello is going from the Heartland to the heart of some international competition.

The Ottawa Senators prospect, a forward with the Cedar Rapids (Iowa) RoughRiders of the United States Hockey League, has been named to the American team for the World Junior A Challenge. The tournament runs from Nov. 1-8 in Summerside, P.E.I.

It’s just reward for Costello, who was selected by the Senators in the fifth round (146th overall) at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in Montreal. The 5-foot-11, 202-pound forward has racked up a team-high five goals and nine points in his first six games with Cedar Rapids this season. His goal total is also tops in the USHL and his ranks second in the league scoring race.

Team USA’s coaching staff in Summerside will be led by Mark Carlson, the RoughRiders’ head coach and general manager. Costello is one of three Cedar Rapids players on the team.

Lehner making noise in the Soo


The Senators’ goaltender of the future is making a rather big impact in the present with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League.

Robin Lehner, the Swedish stopper selected by Ottawa in the second round (46th overall) of the 2009 draft, ranked among the OHL leaders in save percentage (third, .931) and goals-against average (fifth, 2.40) through games played on the weekend. The 18-year-old from Goteborg owns a 3-3-1 record for the Hounds, who were third in the West Division (7-4-0) heading into Thursday night’s game against the Niagara IceDogs.

Quick hits


Louie Caporusso (third round, 2007), a centre at Michigan, was named to the Big Ten’s pre-season all-conference team … With seven points in four games, Michigan State centre Derek Grant (fourth round, 2008) leads all rookies in scoring in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association … Centre Mike Hoffman (fifth round, 2009) had the overtime winner for the Saint John Sea Dogs (QMJHL) against the Moncton Wildcats on Oct. 17, then was named the first star of the game one night later in a 5-2 victory over the P.E.I. Rocket.
