Ottawa Senators prized prospect Erik Brannstrom will be recalled from the AHL to make his NHL debut Thursday versus the St. Louis Blues, the team announced.

Brannstrom was the crown jewel return in the deal that sent Mark Stone to the Vegas Golden Knights last month, and is largely considered one of the top prospects in hockey.

The 19-year-old was drafted 15th overall by the Golden Knights in 2017. He stayed in Sweden for a season before coming to North America to play in the AHL, where he notched 29 points in 46 contests split between the Chicago Wolves and Belleville Senators.

Brannstrom also captained Sweden at this year's world juniors, where he registered four goals in five games.
