With many of the big names out of the way, the Senators are working on organizational depth.

Ottawa announced the signing yesterday of four prospects -- right winger Jeff Heerema, forward Bobby Robins and defencemen Neil Komadoski and Neil Pertruic.

Heerema, the Carolina Hurricanes' first-round pick in the 1998 NHL entry draft (11th overall), spent last season with the Sens' AHL affiliate in Binghamton, N.Y. The Thunder Bay native finished third in Baby Sens scoring with 74 points, and was second in assists (47) and goals (27). He has also been a part of the St. Louis, Vancouver and New York Rangers organizations.

Robins and Komadoski also skated in Binghamton last season. The 6-foot-1 Robins, of Peshtigo, Wisc., played 16 games for the Baby Sens last season, joining them after finishing his college career at Massachusetts-Lowell. He scored seven points.

Komadoski, a 6-foot-2 blueliner from Chesterfield, Mo., has had his past two seasons shortened by injuries. He (third round) and Petruic (eighth) were selected by the Sens in the 2001 draft.

Petruic, a Regina native, split last season between Binghamton and the ECHL's Charlotte Checkers.
