Patrick Wiercioch is coming out of school to play for the Senators.

After getting eliminated last weekend from the NCAA playoffs, the Denver University product has agreed to a three-year entry deal with the club. A No. 2 pick in the 2008 NHL entry draft Wiercioch will likely join the Senators later this week.

In 39 games, Wiercioch had six goals and 21 assists for 27 points.

The Senators are also expecting defenceman Jared Cowen in town any day. The club's top choice in the 2009 NHL entry draft was eliminated Wednesday with the Spokane Chiefs in the Western Hockey League playoffs.
