O'Brien to Join T-Birds

Jim O'Brien, Ottawa's first round 2007 selection (29th overall) in this summer's entry draft, has signed an entry level contract with the Sens and will be joining the WHL Seattle Thunderbirds this season. O'Brien is expected to get much more playing time in the WHL than he got at the U of Minnesota last season.
