Ottawa Senators

There has never been a more exciting time to be part of the Ottawa Senators.

As the team comes into 2017-18 fresh off a deep postseason run, the rest of the NHL has been put on notice. Last year marked the first time since 2010 the club finished with 44 wins during the regular season. However, securing second place in the NHL’s Atlantic Division was just the start.

In the quest to bring Lord Stanley’s Cup back home to the nation’s capital, the Senators look as promising as any team in ending the 24-year drought of bringing the Cup back to Canadian soil. Ottawa represented the country well, as the lone Canadian club to make it all the way to the conference final last season, coming a goal away in Game 7 overtime from reaching the Stanley Cup final for the second time in franchise history.

Solidifying his game plan behind the bench, second-year head coach Guy Boucher will have the Senators prepared for battle every time they hit the ice at Canadian Tire Centre.

Anchored by two-time Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson on the blue-line and reigning Masterson Trophy winner Craig Anderson in goal, NHL General Manager of the year nominee Pierre Dorian now has a talented core from which to sculpt a perennial contender.

This year the Senators have been chosen to be part of September’s Kraft Hockeyville in O’Leary, PEI. In November the Senators travel to Sweden as part of the 2017 Global Series and in December the Senators host the rival Montreal Canadiens outdoors at Lansdowne Park in the Scotiabank NHL 100 Classic Game.

Ottawa has always been a cradle of the game of hockey. With a strong belief in community and team work, the Senators are main street hockey… honest, hard working and respectful. The Ottawa-Gatineau Region is home to 1.75M in their marketing territory – the 4th largest in Canada. It has the highest per capita education and income levels. And its over 1.1M Sens fans is five times as many fans as the next professional sports team.
