2015-2016 Season Preview: Ottawa Senators

Few will soon forget the late-season run of the Ottawa Senators, the one that saw them go 23-4-4 down the stretch to finish with a 43-26-13 record for 2014-2015. This was due in large part to the arrival of head coach Dave Cameron, who took over from Paul MacLean after the latter was canned on […]

Senators Trade Lehner, Legwand to Sabres for Pick

The Ottawa Senators have traded goalie Robin Lehner and forward David Legwand to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for the 21st overall pick in today’s 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

The Hamburglar Drives Ottawa’s Playoff Hopes

How good is Ottawa Senators goalie Andrew Hammond? With his team’s win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night, a 2-1 overtime victory, he nudged his record to 11-0-1 and therefore tied Frank Brimsek as the only NHL goalies to start their career with a dozen straight games in which fewer than three goals were […]

Ottawa Senators Fire Paul MacLean

The Ottawa Senators have fired coach Paul MacLean on Monday and have named Dave Cameron as his replacement. The move may seem sudden and strange, especially given the fact that the Edmonton Oilers are inhabiting the basement and have thus far stood by their coach. And Ottawa’s firing of MacLean also seems sudden and strange […]

Daniel Alfredsson Officially Announces Retirement

A week before his 42nd birthday, Daniel Alfredsson announced his retirement from the National Hockey League.

A Saturday Night in Canada
