Look, I've always been a fan of young players.

I'm the guy who is obsessed with the World Junior Hockey Championship. I'm the guy that for years, when a new EA Sports NHL game would come out, I would create a team of all of my favourite exciting young players around the league that were new to the game. Yes, I'm a nerd.

So it comes as no surprise that when a young player gets called up in the organization, I get pretty excited.

Like I said yesterday, these days, it is a bit of an overload with all of the young players in the Senators lineup. Last night, the most impressive Senators for me (other than Erik Karlsson, Daniel Alfredsson and Kyle Turris) were Patrick Wiercioch, Jakob Silfverberg, Stephane Da Costa and most importantly Mika Zibanejad.
