Jakob Silfverberg To Make NHL Debut With Senators In Game 6

Jakob Silfverberg, a 20-year-old prospect with a big time pedigree, will make his debut for the Ottawa Senators on Monday night in their crucial Game 6 against the New York Rangers. Silfverberg was a second round draft pick back in 2009, but chose to stay in Sweden and develop his game. This past season, he was the MVP of the Swedish Elite League and his team, Brynäs IF, won the league title.

Ottawa Senators blog Silver Seven describes the 6'1", 187 pound left winger as having "a wicked shot" and they noted that he was playing with Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek in Monday morning practice. Notably, he's the second player that the Sens have handed an NHL debut to during this series. In Game 5, 19-year-old Mark Stone made his debut for the team.
