Ranking The Top 20 Ottawa Senators Prospects: #20-16

5 of 5

16. Kelly Summers

Defenceman – Clarkson University – 2014 7th round pick (Ottawa Senators)

ECAC 6foot1 197lbs

Summers was a 7th round pick in last year’s draft. His offensive game excelled during his time with the Carleton State Canadiens, but since moving to the NCAA that aspect of his game has taken a hit. However, the transition has been good as Summers was recognized as a 19-year-old, taking Rookie of the week honours in a league with nearly 60 teams and on a young Clarkson team who had a 12-20-5 record this season.

The 10 points through 34 games this years is quite unlike his 60 points in 54 games last year. Although, a new challenge for Summers should only lead to greater things ahead. As a 19-year-old, Summers is among the youngest in the NCAA and given his non CHL draft status, the Senators have until 2018 to extend him an entry level offer.

The adjustment year is over for Summers. With offence being a big weapon to his game, look for him to take the next step in 2015-16, potentially climbing this list next year.
