Ottawa Senators forward Logan Brown's agent, Andy Scott, expressed his disappointment with the club's development of his client after the forward was one of the final cuts at training camp.

"I can say with full confidence, that I've really never seen another player met with such resistance by the team that drafted them early in the first round," Scott told TSN Radio 1200 Ottawa.

"When I look at this situation, I see a team that is in the throes of a rebuild," he added. "And just driving around Ottawa, you see the slogan for this season is 'The Kids are All Right,' and if the kids are all right, then play the kids."

The Senators selected Brown with the 11th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, but the 21-year-old has appeared in only six pro contests for the club.

Scott believes the Senators have not put Brown in a position to succeed and suggested that players of his ilk are typically given a chance to compete alongside other elite talents.

"From Day 1, I really have seen Logan have to grind and claw and work his tail off for every morsel of opportunity that he's been provided," Scott said. "Whereas with some of these other guys, these elite players like Logan, it's a little bit easier. They get paired with top lines, top players, put into positions to excel."

Brown failed to record a point during four preseason contests and was sent to the American Hockey League on Sunday. He tallied 14 goals and 42 points in 56 games with the AHL's Belleville Senators last season.
