by Chris Lund / Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators announced the signing of defenceman Ben Harpur to an entry-level contract on Thursday. Here's what assistant GM Randy Lee had to say about the newly inked Sens prospect...

On Harpur:

Ben is one of those guys that really impressed us in our development camp, he has improved considerably. Coach MacLean told him that from year to year he was one of the guys that achieved the most in terms of improvement. He's the kind of guy that is growing into his body, he's challenging for a spot on the World Junior team which will be a great experience for him, he's a versatile guy who can play the left and right side, which should give him a better chance of making that team. In Guelph he has taken on a real leadership role, he is playing big minutes there and we hope to see him progress throughout the season.
