The Ottawa Senators' chief scout, Trent Mann.

But if the Ottawa Senators decide to use the No. 7 selection of the NHL draft — set for July 7 at the Bell Centre in Montreal — the club will leave the draft with a strong prospect for the future.

While Trent Mann has to be prepared for any scenario presented by general manager Pierre Dorion in the days leading up to the annual crapshoot, the Senators’ chief scout is confident the club will end up with another strong asset if the they decide to make the selection.

“We’ll be fine. I know there’s been discussions about how good the draft is but the reality the draft doesn’t consist of a (Connor) McDavid or a (Sidney) Crosby type of player,” Mann told this newspaper from his New Brunswick home in an interview before he left for the IIHF world championship Thursday.
