The Ottawa Senators continue to add talented prospects to the organization, this time signing Roby Jarventie to a three-year, entry-level contract. The deal will begin in the 2021-22 season, though since Jarventie is still just 18, it could slide forward again depending on where he spends next year. For the remainder of this season, Jarventie will join the Belleville Senators on an amateur tryout following the required quarantine period.

Senators’ GM Pierre Dorion released a statement on his newest prospect:

"We’re pleased to get Roby under contract at such an early stage of his development. He has already demonstrated good promise as a goal scorer while using what is both a good shot and good hockey sense. He’s competitive and has a knack for getting to the net. Acclimatizing to the North American game for the remainder of this season should prove valuable for him."

The boom in collaboration software creates extra security risks

  The boom in collaboration software creates extra security risks While the software solutions have made it easier to work from home, they've also made it easier to launch malware.Karen Roby: We do all of our work now, or the good majority of it, through things like this, right? Zoom and Teams, and we're talking on Slack, and we're talking with people outside of our organization, and bringing them in through all of these channels and all of this is going on. And the criminals out there, they're waiting to take a bite out of everything, and that's what we're seeing so much of.

Jarventie was selected 33rd overall at the 2020 draft, but because of the three first-round picks the Senators had, he joins the organization with a little less fanfare than usual for such a high second-round pick. Doubting his upside is a mistake though, as the 6-2 winger played very well in his first full season in Liiga, Finland’s highest tier. In 48 games for Ilves Tampere, Jarventie recorded 14 goals and 25 points.

Using his big frame to protect the puck, Jarventie can create offense off the cycle instead of being rush-dependent, something that will come in handy at the next level. Transitioning to the speed of the North American game may be difficult at first, but the Senators obviously believe he’s ready to test himself against AHL opponents already. Whether he stays with Belleville next season or returns to Finland isn’t clear, but it is unlikely he challenges for a roster spot in Ottawa during 2021-22.

Carolina drafted Marshall at No. 59, reuniting him with offensive coordinator Joe Brady. The Saints then took Ohio State linebacker Pete Werner at 60. Marshall, who now joins Panthers vets D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson, played a key role for LSU’s national championship team alongside Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase and last season after those future first-rounders left.
