The Ottawa Senators actually made good decisions once upon a time.

We are now past the midway point of the 2018-19 NHL season, and it looks like the Ottawa Senators are going to miss out on the postseason (Barring a miracle run in their final 30 games).

The organization is about to pull the trigger on a rebuild, which means a lot of attention is going to be on how well the Senators draft over the next few years. With this in mind it would be nice to look back and see the picks that the Sens absolutely nailed.

Some may be obvious, but the Senators have actually done really well when it comes to late-round draft picks in their history. They have also succeeded with their first round picks on multiple occasions too. Hockey history is always fun, so let’s look back at the best choices the Sens ever made in the draft.

(Note: We will only be looking at players who spent a significant amount of time with the Senators. Also their statistics are representative of their time in Ottawa.)
