OTTAWA - A look at the Senators' organizational depth chart after the team's summertime activity to date suggests that Jean-Gabriel Pageau is still a bubble player.

He just appears to have more of that bubble to himself right now.

The 21-year old centre doesn't quite think of it that way, however. Five weeks before the start of camp, Pageau is confident in his chances of remaining in Ottawa for the 2014-15 season.

"For sure I see myself in the lineup," Pageau said Thursday while visiting the Senators hockey camps at the new Richcraft Sensplex. "I always believe in myself and I'll always believe in myself. But I know it's going to be hard. That's basically why I'm giving a little extra every morning ... just work hard and give everything I have to make sure I do my best.

"If I go to camp and do my best, I'm sure they'll find a way to find a spot in the lineup for me."
