As part of the trade for Andrej Meszaros we got, from Tampa Bay, Filip Kuba and this guy – Alexandre Picard. Picard is a local boy, hailing from the city of Gatineau, which is right across the Ottawa river. Picard began his career by playing major junior hockey for the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL. He was signed by Philadelphia and played for the Flyers & the Phantoms in the AHL. Picard was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning on February 25, 2008 (along with a draft pick) for forward Vaclav Prospal. If he plays steady he has a good chance of building his career with the Sens and being close to home will probably be good. And hey, who knows, if he gets better, maybe one day he could make captain. And we can all call him Captain Picard.
Make it so!
