Senators History

Frank Finnigan is not in the Hall of Fame, nor was he ever the biggest star for the original Ottawa Senators. From 1923 to 1937, he only led his team twice in scoring and was overshadowed by future Hall-of-Famers Cy Denneny, Alex Connell, Frank 'King' Clancy and Frank Nighbor. Yet, Finnigan's No. 8 hangs from the rafters beside Daniel Alfredsson's No. 11 at the Canadian Tire Center. Much of that has to do with his role in bringing the Senators back to Ottawa in 1992.

Vladislav Namestnikov's brief time with the New York Rangers has come to an end. The speedy Russian forward has been traded to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a 2021 fourth-round draft pick and defenseman Nick Ebert. The Rangers also retained $750,000 of Namestnikov's $4 million cap hit. Namestnikov was brought to New York in the trade that sent JT Miller and former captain Ryan McDonagh to the Tampa Bay Lightning. He produced a lot of offense in Tampa Bay, but seemed to have trouble developing during his stint in the Big Apple. Namesnikov and Ebert In 99 games with the Rangers spanning over portions of three seasons, Namestnikov notched 35 points. He will join an Senators squad that is somewhat young and also trying to build. He'll likely be a second or third-line player for them. Vladislav Namestnikov (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Nick Ebert, born next door in New Jersey, was originally a seventh-round pick of the Los Angeles Kings in 2012. Since being...
