The Senators will have a shot to draft a good player in the No. 9. hole.

Ottawa needs defencemen and there are some available.

Most notable is Ryan Parent a defenceman with the Guelph Storm, who is ranked No. 7 among North Americans by Central Scouting.

The club might also have a shot at Matt Lashoff from the Kitchener Rangers.

Since Europeans aren't expected to go high, Jakub Vojta from the Czech Republic is a strong possibility.

"From what we've been able to see, this is a very strong draft and there's a lot of good players in the first round," said Senators GM John Muckler.
