January 21st, 2021 The NHL has been under a redesign fever for the last several seasons. The Florida Panthers and Dallas Stars have been some of the boldest as of late, completely changing their colour scheme, but most teams in the league have undergone some form of an overhaul in the past 15 years. Even the Toronto...

Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators are getting set to begin their 2020-21 campaign when they face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 15. It will be game one of 56 for the Senators and head coach D.J. Smith is ready for the challenge ahead. The North Division is going to be a tough grind for Ottawa, but players and staff remain optimistic. As the Senators continue to rebuild with Smith at the helm, the season will be "trial by fire" as he alluded to on Jan. 4 in a Zoom call. The Senators will be going up against some of the league's best teams and star players night after night, and it's time to see what Smith is made of as a bench boss. The Challenge This will be the beginning of Smith's second season as head coach for Ottawa. In his inaugural season, similar to the one he was apart of in Toronto with Mike Babcock, the Sens were battling consistently and always showed up for a game. Even though they finished the season 25-34-12, Smith had the players buy into a new system and shifted the...

Today’s edition of “Prospects News & Rumors” has a Canadian flair to it as we look at three young players who are hopefully going to make an impact in the home country of hockey. The Ottawa Senators got a first-hand look at the top prospect in their system this morning. A future sniper in Toronto showed why Maple Leafs fans are excited. Finally, a recent Montreal Canadiens draft pick continues to tear it up in the United States Hockey League (USHL). Stuetzle Takes the Ice in Ottawa After spending a few days in quarantine following the World Junior Championship, Tim Stuetzle finally joined his Senators teammates for practice on Sunday morning. He showed up bright and early before putting on his No. 18 sweater for the first time and taking to the ice. “I was very excited just getting here and getting to know all the boys,” Stuetzle told TSN 1200 in Ottawa this morning. “I am looking forward to...

Defenseman Jake Sanderson and Team USA won gold over defenseman Jamie Drysdale and Team Canada at the 2021 World Junior Championship (WJC). Some would tell you that this is Sanderson’s second major upset over Drysdale in the past three months. Jake Sanderson and Team USA beat Jamie Drysdale and Team Canada to win the 2021 World Junior Championship. Prior to the tournament, eight of 10 experts at the Sporting News picked Canada to win gold, while just two predicted Team USA on top of the podium. The morning of the game, MSN Sports picked Team Canada. That article cited the wagering site DraftKings.com as having the Canadians the betting favorite at -200, with the Americans at +135. Sanderson Unexpectedly Selected Ahead of Drysdale in the NHL’s 2020 Entry Draft More than a year prior to the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, most prognosticators ranked Drysdale as the top defenseman available. Sanderson was, at best, an afterthought that far out. But, as you can...

Long before he became one of the biggest and most disappointing contracts in New York Islanders franchise history, Alexei Yashin was traded to the Islanders from the Ottawa Senators back on June 23, 2001. At the time, Yashin was a talented forward with a high-skill level and offensive upside that was clearly appealing to the Islanders and their general manager at the time, Mike Milbury. So much so, that Milbury moved a budding defenceman, a frisky forward and a first-round pick in 2001. While Yashin spent the first seven seasons of his NHL career with the Senators, the team shipped the forward to the Islanders following two 85-plus point seasons for Bill Muckalt, Zdeno Chara and a first-round pick that turned into Jason Spezza at second overall in 2001. But how did the trade play out for both teams? Let’s have a look. Over Yashin Yet? In seven years with the Senators, Yashin was nearly a point-per-game player. He had 218 goals and 491 points in 504 regular season...

Ottawa Senators

The 2020-21 NHL Season is closing in fast, and after a flurry of activity, the Ottawa Senators spent this past week getting down to business at training camp. There are a lot of new faces, from veterans to rookies, and all will be trying to give the team a new identity after a very tough 2019-20 season. They're off to a good start - they have new jerseys and a new face of the franchise in Tim Stuetzle, plus several other top prospects who are the results of a long, painful rebuild. But it won't be an easy transition. The Senators have a long way to go before they become a powerhouse in the Eastern Conference, and the North Division, consisting of all Canadian teams, will be a challenge. But that hardly matters now. Hockey is finally back for the first time since March 2020, and the future couldn't look brighter. Item One: Greig Signs Entry-Level Deal The Senators signed their third player from the 2020 Draft, Ridly Greig, to a three-year entry-level contract. A star for...

How well do you know your Ottawa Senators? How closely do you follow the World Junior Championships (WJC) each year? Some of these questions are easy, and some are geared toward die-hard fans. Regardless, from Yashin and Daigle to Stuetzle and Sanderson, there is a rich history of strong performances by players who went on to play for the Sens. Here's a two-part question. Only three Ottawa Senators have played in three WJC tournaments. Can you name them? The first Senator to play in three WJCs was Jason Spezza who suited up for Canada from 2000-02. In 2000, Spezza and Jay Bouwmeester became the third and fourth 16-year-olds to play for Canada in the tournament after Wayne Gretzky and Eric Lindros had done it before them. Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid also played for Canada at 16. Defenceman Brian Lee was the second Senator to play in three tournaments. He played for Team USA from 2005-07. Lee was drafted ninth overall by Ottawa in 2005. The other Senator to play in...
