4. Mark Stone (2010, 6th Round, 178th Overall)

The player chosen latest in his draft on this list, Mark Stone may not have the tenure that Phillips or Neil had, but he is already becoming something much more than just another player.

A sixth round pick amassing 300 points in 359 games is already impressive, but when you consider the circumstances around Stone’s time in Ottawa, his performance becomes even more astounding.

Stone’s presence through the numerous idiotic moments of management and ownership has given fans a beam of hope that they can follow over the next few years. When, not if, the Senators re-sign him, Stone will be the next captain of the Sens, and there couldn’t be a better choice right now.

All of that makes the Sens getting him so late in the draft even sweeter.
