Senators call up defencemen Chabot, Jaros from AHL

Ottawa Senators top prospect Thomas Chabot is ready to show that he belongs in the NHL, by facing top talents like Auston Matthews and William Nylander.

The Ottawa Senators called up defencemen Thomas Chabot and Christian Jaros on Sunday from their AHL-affiliate Belleville Senators.

Chabot, the 20-year-old first-round pick from the 2015 draft, recorded two points (one goal, one assist) and a minus-one rating in five games during the pre-season.

Jaros, a fifth-round pick from the same year, recorded an assist in the only pre-season game he appeared in this year. He played the previous three seasons in the Swedish Hockey league.

The Senators do not play until Tuesday, when they head out West to take on the Vancouver Canucks.
