Senators Draft D Ben Roger with 49th Pick in 2021 Draft

With the 49th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, the Ottawa Senators selected defenceman Ben Roger, of the Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights.

The pick was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings, along with the 136th overall selection, in exchange for Ottawa’s 42nd overall choice.

A native of Brighton, Ontario, Roger is a hulking right-handed defender, clocking in at 6’4 and 200lbs. The 18 year-old put on around 30lbs during the extended layoff provided by the cancelled 2021 OHL season, and is expected to have a top four role with the Knights when the puck drops this fall.
