Ottawa Senators Place 3 Players on Waivers

The Ottawa Senators have placed Dillon Heatherington, Jacob Lucchini, and Rourke Chartier on waivers. 

Heatherington is the most notable name of the trio. The 6-foot-4 defenseman played nine games for the Senators last season, where he had a minus-1 rating and seven penalty minutes. His physicality and toughness made it seem that he had a chance to make the club as their seventh defenseman, but that of course has not come to fruition. 

Lucchini just put together a solid season for the Belleville Senators. After having just six points in 28 games the season before with the Laval Rocket, Lucchini put together a 51-point campaign in 72 contests with Belleville. 

Chartier also had a very good season with Belleville. In 33 games, he scored 10 goals and recorded 25 points. Perhaps this kind of season could make another NHL club take a chance on him.
