The Ottawa Senators head into the most pivotal draft in the franchise’s history
The Ottawa Senators head into the 2020 NHL Draft with 12 draft picks, including 7 selections in the first two rounds. Selecting at 3, 5, 28, 33, 51, 58, 60, 63, 70, 154, 157 and 180 the franchise has a great opportunity to consolidate their rebuild and kickstart their journey to “unparalleled success”.
Ottawa holds two picks in the top-5 and are the first team since 2000 to be in that position, the last team being the New York Islanders who selected Rick DiPietro and Raffi Torres, but the year prior Vancouver was in the same situation and nabbed the Sedin Twins, let’s hope it’s similar to the latter.
With the Senators holding so much draft capital, trades will most likely be on the menu as Pierre Dorion has said it’s more likely they deal at least one of their first nine picks than hold on to them.
Dorion says it’s more likely that they’ll trade some of their first nine picks, rather than keep them all.

Whether for an established veteran or used as a package to trade up in the draft, Dorion is in an enviable position that many GM’s would love to be in.
Nobody truly knows that direction the Senators will go with their multitude of draft picks and Tuesday should provide enough suspense for the whole fanbase with also much overdue excitement.
