One of the biggest surprises at the beginning of the NHL season was the fact that 17 year old Alex Formenton made the Ottawa Senators's opening night roster. Formenton did not even have an entry level deal until days after it was announced that he made the Sens. His one game with the Senators had mixed reviews and a lot of people clearly saw that he was not ready. Regardless, it was an unbelievable camp from the 2nd round pick and he is building off that in the OHL with the London Knights.
Formenton is on pace for over 60 points in the OHL with 18 points in 14 games and was very impressive for Team OHL at the CIBC Canada Russia series which is Hockey Canada's big scouting event for the upcoming World Juniors which is always one of the biggest events around the holidays. We want to hear from you! What do you think about Alex Formenton? Are you excited see him grow? Do you think he might be a flash in the pan?
