Bertuzzi has been on the scoresheet in all but two games this time around. He should be watched closely at training camp, as he appears to be due for an NHL promotion in 2017-18.

Zach Senyshyn is playing with Providence in the AHL playoffs after completing his third full season in the Ontario Hockey League.

"Coming in here, I've realized it's a big jump to this level and an even bigger jump to the next one. Right now, I'm just trying to take it day by day and soak up as much as possible."
