Back In Business

Apologies for the lack of updates the past few days.

Went down to Toronto with some friends to catch a couple Jays games and was not able to update the site while I was away.  Back in Ottawa now though and ready to get down to business, with the preseason opener set to go tomorrow night.

The Ottawa Senators kicked off training camp this weekend and have already seen a player go down to injury.  Jesse Winchester went heavily into the boards on Day 1 and will be out for the rest of training camp with a shoulder injury. 

His status for the regular season is unknown.

Meanwhile, the rest of the team is getting set for the preseason opener against the Leafs tomorrow night.  The lineup will include 6th overall draft pick Mika Zibanejad along with a handful of other veterans.  The team will bring 26 players to Toronto and decide on a line up tomorrow.

  • The Sens have done a great job protecting the new heritage design but it appears we finally have our first real leak.  The website Icethetics has posted a picture of the jersey in a store in Buffalo.  Looks awesome!
  • As I mentioned on Twitter, the Sens have started with a line of Filatov-Spezza-Butler to open camp.  The second line features Michalek-Zibanejad-Alfredsson.  Should be interesting to see if those combos stick.
