It’s early, real early, but the Ottawa Senators young goaltending prospects have been remarkably stingy in the early stages of the Canadian Hockey League season.

Francois Brassard, the Senators’ sixth round selection (166th overall) at last June’s NHL entry draft, owns a perfect 5-0-0 mark, along with a 1.40 goals against average and a .941 save percentage with the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL.

Out in Calgary, Chris Driedger, the Senators’ third round pick (76th overall) last June, is flashing a tidy 3-0-1 mark with a 1.73 average and .940 save percentage for the Hitmen of the WHL.

Among skaters, Ottawa 67′s defenceman Cody Ceci, whom the Senators chose 15th overall in June, has one goal and five assists in fourĀ games. Matt Puempel, now in Kitchener following a summer trade from Peterborough, has four goals and an assist in four games and Stefan Noesen of the Plymouth Whalers has two goals in three games.
