Jim O’Brien(19) Ottawa Senators

Ottawa Senators‘ 3rd year center Jim O’Brien(19) was a 1st round pick in the 2007 draft (#29 overall) and in the 3rd year of his entry level deal, he’s starting to light it up a bit.

He has career highs with 19 games played, 2 goals and 2 assists, his first NHL points. He failed to tally in his first recall for 6 games last season but seems to be trying to make up for it in earnest in this a new contract year for him.

In 183 regular season AHL games, all with Binghamton he’s racked up a tidy 39 goals and 49 assists. He was a pivotal part of the B-Sens’ Calder Cup Championship run last season appearing in 23 postseason games scoring 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists).

At 6’2″ 2oo lbs. he has the makings of a power forward, no he just needs to bring it.
