Scott Sabourin (born July 30, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Sabourin played four seasons (20092013) of major junior hockey with the Oshawa Generals in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), scoring 46 goals and 34 assists for 80 points, while earning 330 penalty minutes, in 166 OHL games played.

Undrafted, on April 10, 2013, the Manchester Monarchs signed Sabourin to a two-year AHL contract, and he started his professional career at the tail-end of the 2012–13 AHL season by skating in five regular-season and three playoff games with the Monarchs. On October 7, 2013, following an impressive pre-season training camp,[1] Sabourin was signed by the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL) to a three-year entry-level contract[2] and he was assigned to play the 2013–14 season in the AHL with the Monarchs.[3]

During the 2015–16 season, on January 29, 2016, Sabourin was traded by the Kings to the Minnesota Wild in a trade deadline in exchange for center Brett Sutter.[4] As a free agent from the Wild in the following off-season, Sabourin signed to continue in the AHL, securing a one-year deal with the San Diego Gulls on September 8, 2016.[5]

On July 2, 2017, having impressed with the Gulls, Sabourin was retained by NHL affiliate, the Anaheim Ducks, on a one-year, two-way contract.[6]

As a free agent from the Ducks, Sabourin was later invited to attend the Calgary Flames 2018 training camp. After his release from the Flames, he was later signed to begin the 2018–19 season on a professional try-out contract with AHL affiliate, the Stockton Heat, on October 5, 2018.[7]

After attending the Ottawa Senators training camp on a professional tryout, Sabourin signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Ottawa Senators on September 27, 2019. Sabourin, who grew up in the Ottawa suburb of Orléans, was coached by Senators coach D. J. Smith during his final year of junior hockey.[8] Sabourin made his NHL debut against the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 2, 2019, scoring his first career NHL goal in a losing effort.[9]
