OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced today that the team has signed forward Tyler Boucher to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Boucher, 18, is in the midst of his first season with the Boston University Terriers (Hockey East) and has registered three points (two goals, one assist) and a team-leading 34 penalty minutes while skating in 17 of the team's 18 games this season.
"We're pleased to have Tyler under contract," said Ottawa Senators general manager Pierre Dorion. "He's a power forward who plays a heavy, physical game. He's driven, is strong with the puck, has a big shot and goes hard to the net. His good hands in tight areas will be of particular benefit to him going forward. We expect him to be an important part of this team's future."
A native of Haddonfield, N.J., Boucher skated in 29 United States Hockey League contests with the U.S. National Development Program over the two seasons prior to 2021-22 tallying 16 points (seven goals, nine assists) and 60 penalty minutes. He was the Senators' first-round pick (10th overall) in the 2021 NHL Draft.
