Jakob Silfverberg gets big shot with Ottawa Senators
By BRUCE GARRIOCH, QMI Agency
WINNIPEG -- Jakob Silfverberg is ready for prime time.
While there are plenty of expectations for the Senators rookie winger as the club prepares to open the season Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets, the 22-year-old Swede doesn't seem the least bit nervous.
Now, he has a bit of an advantage over other newcomers in the NHL this season: He made his debut last year in the playoffs at Madison Square Garden an has honed his skills to the North American game in the AHL.
