Observations:

May 2014 – Stephane Da Costa had an impressive season in Binghamton with 18 goals and 40 assists in 56 games and a plus-19 to boot.  This is certainly good news for Da Costa, who many had written off as a valued prospect for this organization.  Although Binghamton was knocked off in the first round, Da Costa produced at a point-per-game (two goals, two assists).  The fact that Da Costa seems to have some chemistry with other Sens prospects and the fact that those prospects could challenge for roster spots next year, bodes well for him to crack the lineup come September.  Unfortunately for the Paris native his size is still a bit of an issue, especially considering JG Pageau brings a similar type of game (and size) and the organization seems to be higher on him (a playoff hat trick will do that).   It’s worth noting that Da Costa also had a strong performance at the World Championships, including two goals in a surprising 3-2 win over Canada. Nathan Kanter
