Sens Ink Claesson To ELC

The Senators have signed Swedish defenceman Fredrik Claesson to a 3 year entry level deal the club announced today. Claessen, who was the Senators 5th round pick last year, played in the Swedish Elite League last season for Djurgradens with fellow Sens prospect Mika Zibanejad. They both were also members of Sweden's Gold Medal team at the 2012 World Junior's.

On a personal note, while in the stands for a practice in the playoffs, I overheard Bryan Murray saying the 2 prospects the Sens expect big things from next year is friend of the blog Shane Prince and the man of the hour Fredrik Claesson. With that in mind I think there's a good shot he plays in Binghamton next year.

Thoughts on the signing?
