Senators sign first round picks Noesen, Puempel


The Ottawa Senators have signed Stefan Noesen and Matt Puempel to entry level contracts.

Noesen, selected 21st overall in the 2011 entry draft, has 13 goals, 21 assists and 32 penalty minutes in 30 games with the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League.

Puempel, taken 24th overall in the 2011 draft, has 17 goals and 15 assists in 29 games with the OHL’s Peterborough Petes.

With Thursday’s signings, the Senators now have all three of their first round picks from last June’s draft under contract. Mika Zibanejad, currently playing for Sweden at the world junior championships, was signed to a deal in the summer.
