Austin Watson is looking forward to getting a fresh start with the Ottawa Senators.
"Last season was a tough one for Nashville Predators period and individually for me," Watson said. "There were some good spots early on but with the coaching change and then around the trade deadline last year I was definitely more prepared then to be moved than I was in the summer. I figured after the Return to Play, and getting the opportunity to play throughout the playoffs (in Edmonton), I thought the ship had been kind of righted a little bit. I was a little bit caught off guard but just super-excited for a new opportunity as well." He generated six goals, 14 points, 65 penalty minutes and 131 hits in 53 games last season. Watson is expected to add some physicality and help out the penalty kill as a member of the Senators. Nov 27 5:46 pm (EST)
