12. Ottawa Senators

Previous: No. 9

Record: 33-22-6 (72 points)

Guy Boucher and the Senators are hanging around the playoff picture. It’s amazing how the top five leaders in scoring on the Sens are under age 30. Erik Karlsson, Mark Stone, Kyle Turris, Mike Hoffman and Derick Brassard are keeping the team afloat offensively. With the return of Craig Anderson in net, the Senators could be one move away from winning a couple rounds this year.
