Senators sign 2011 sixth-round pick to two-year deal

By Jared Clinton (@JPDClinton)

The Ottawa Senators have announced the signing of Max McCormick, their 2011 sixth-round pick.

McCormick, who just completed three years with the NCAA’s Ohio State Univeristy, comes to the Sens after a career-best NCAA campaign. In 37 games, the 22-year-old winger registered 11 goals and 35 points, besting his┬áprevious high of 31 points.

In 104 total NCAA games, McCormick racked up 36 goals and 52 assists, along with 97 PIM.

At 5’11” and 192 lbs., McCormick brings average size to the lineup, and will certainly help fill out the ranks for the Senators. While, according the Sens release, McCormick has been at each of the teams’ three previous development camps, this is the forward’s first deal with the team.

It appears likely that McCormick, barring an incredible pre-season, will begin the season with the Binghamton Senators.
