Scouting The 2014-’15 Binghamton Senators: Offense

4 of 6

#22 David Dziurzynski

Age: 24 (Oct 6, 1989)
Birthplace: Lloydminster, ALTA
Hgt/Wgt: 6’3 218 lbs Pst: Left Wing/Center
Acquired: Re-signed in July during the off-season.
Contract: $85,000/$750,000 – 1st yr of 2 yr, 2-way

Last Season: Binghamton; 68 games 13 goals 12 assists 91 PIM -1


  • Played his entire pro career covering four seasons for the Senators organization including 12 games up in Ottawa scoring a pair of goals in 2013.
  • Potential Captain material. Fan favorite and likes to drop the glove’s on occasion.
  • Had a pro high 13 goals last season as he potted four of them in the last seven games.
  • Skates hard up and down the ice using his big body in the corners. Younger brother Darian plays for the Portland Pirates.

Outlook: Poised forward seems to be scratching the surface as he makes things happen in the corners and in front of the net. Should be a big plus in the locker room in helping out the new guys providing leadership. Knows his role as a grinder while adding an offensive upside to his game as of late. On the Radar.

#37 Darren Kramer

Age: 22 (Nov 19, 1991)
Birthplace: Peace River, ALTA
Hgt/Wgt: 6’1 201 lbs Pst: Left Wing
Acquired: Ottawa Senators – 6th round draft pick in 2011 (156th Overall).
Contract: $60,000/$635,000 – 3rd yr of 3 yr entry-level

Last Season: Binghamton; 45 games 2 goals 2 assists 178 PIM -15


  • Club leader in penalty minutes and at the same time getting into a team high 18 fights.
  • Hard working forward that’s well liked in the locker room. Team pest, always chirping away at his opponents.
  • Has a nasty slapper that found the back of the net on occasion last season. Gives effort on the ice with limited talents.
  • Plays the agitator role really well. Flourishes in getting under opponent’s skin. Scored three goals in the recent rookie tournament for Ottawa.

Outlook: Likes to drop the gloves as the team bruiser while not ranking him a heavy, but can hold his own and not afraid to take on those that are labeled heavy’s. Knows when to take his battles and not hurt the team in the process. In a game against Syracuse he took on three players at once!


#41 Jakub Culek

Age: 21 (Sep 7, 1992)
Birthplace: Plzen, Czech Rep.
Hgt/Wgt: 6’3 186 lbs Pst: Left Wing
Acquired: Ottawa Senators – 3rd round draft pick in 2010 (76th Overall).
Contract: $67,500/$620,000 – 3rd yr of 3 yr entry-level

Last Season: Elmira//Binghamton; 49 games 8 goals 22 assists 27 PIM n/a // 7 games 0 goals 0 assists 2 PIM -4


  • Lanky forward needs to step up in his assertiveness which could be a lot to ask.
  • Needs to continue to work hard to bring his offensive talent’s out.
  • Don’t really notice him but seems good on his feet.
  • Unable to adapt to the pro game on North American soil as of yet on the smaller rinks.

Outlook: Hard to rate after seeing him briefly. Still a ways away from the player he’s been in the past with offensive instincts that he once possessed. Has a lot to prove this season as the organization might just cut ties with the 21-year-old Czech via a trade. Most likely heading to the Indiana IceMen of the ECHL.
