Senators Rumors & News

  • Senators Hoffman scores twice in 4-2 victory over Sharks

    Ottawa Sun "Whatever the Senators packed in their bags for this five-game, 10-day road trip, it’s safe to assume nobody brought a broom. But then, who could have expected they’d sweep through California for the first time in franchise history? Third-period goals 4:07 apart by rookies Mark Stone and Mike..." March 01

  • Sens winger Erik Condra emerging as key fourth-liner

    Ottawa Sun "Erik Condra may be able to relax. Unless GM Bryan Murray gets an offer he can't refuse, the UFA winger may not be going anywhere before Monday's deadline. While a lot might depend on outcome and where the Senators stand after Saturday's visit to San Jose, Murray is certainly leaning towards..." February 28

  • Senators had talks with Leafs about obtaining Clarkson "Turns out the Columbus Blue Jackets weren't the only team intrigued by the idea of giving David Clarkson a change of scenery.

    Ottawa Sun "Another chapter was written in the surprising and inspiring story of Andrew Hammond on Wednesday night at Honda Center. And suddenly, the story of this Senators season is threatening to take an interesting turn. In his third NHL start and first ever on the road, Hammond kicked aside 25 shots..." February 26

  • Bettman: Salary Cap Won’t ‘Fall Off A Cliff’ Because Of Canadian Dollar

    NESN "The March 2 NHL trade deadline is fast approaching and a lot of general managers around the league will be wary of acquiring players with term on their contract beyond this season because of the uncertainty of next year’s salary cap. The salary cap ceiling for the 2014-15 campaign is $69..." February 25

  • Sens could unload Condra, Greening at trade deadline

    Ottawa Sun "First, a riddle: What's 400 pounds heavier leaving Ottawa Feb. 23 than it will be when it returns Mar. 5? And no, not a sportswriter who stops somewhere for a little lypo. The answer is the Senators charter, because the words "future pick" don't weigh a thing. At least nobody would be..." February 24

  • Senators to showcase Greening

    Ottawa Sun "The Senators are bringing up an extra forward for one of their longest road trips of the season. There are no guarantees they’ll come home with everybody who starts the trip, though.

  • Puempel is the latest prospect to earn a Senators audition

    Ottawa Citizen "Around the Ottawa Senators there’s an air of anticipation, comparable to young actors trying out for roles in a spring theatrical production.

  • Senators' Neil has thumb surgery, cast expected off in 2 weeks

    The Score "Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil underwent thumb surgery and will need several weeks to recover, general manager Bryan Murray confirmed Friday. Neil's cast is expected to be removed in about two weeks, Murray said." February 20

  • Andrew Hammond gets 4-2 win over Habs in his first NHL start

    Ottawa Citizen "Andrew Hammond was cool and calm in the minutes immediately after claiming his first NHL victory in his first big league start Wednesday.

  • Erik Condra could be Sens most tradable commodity

    Ottawa Sun "When he decided on his line combinations for Monday’s game, Super Dave Cameron was setting himself up for a common complaint. “Why would you not give Shane Prince a better chance to succeed in his NHL debut?,” callers to the post-game show on TSN1200 were sure to whine. “He’s a goal scorer …..." February 17

  • Senators sign D Methot to four-year extension "The Ottawa Senators have signed defenceman Marc Methot to four-year contract extension worth $19.6M.

  • Teammates make case for keeping Marc Methot in Ottawa

    Ottawa Sun "None of them are telling Bryan Murray how to do his business, but the Senators also don't want to see Marc Methot get traded.

  • Senators' Chris Neil breaks thumb in fight with Luke Gazdic "Even though he doesn't seem to have any interest in leaving Ottawa, Chris Neil's name is one that has been mentioned frequently in trade talks ahead of next month's trade deadline for teams that might want to add some sort of physical presence to their fourth line. Any team that was interested..." February 14

  • Penguins are able to salvage victory over Senators in shootout

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Victories don't come much more unsatisfying. David Perron scored the only goal in the shootout, and the Penguins emerged with a 5-4 shootout win over the Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday. They also may have emerged with a bruised psyche. Entering the third period with a 3-0 lead..." February 13

  • The payoff for Senators in no playoff? Prospect development

    Ottawa Citizen "In the Ottawa Senators perfect world, they would have been in the Winnipeg Jets position Wednesday, bolstering their lineup through a blockbuster trade for a push to the playoffs.

  • Michalek becoming trade bait for Senators

    Ottawa Sun "Any chance there was of Chris Phillips being traded before the deadline has surely gone out the window now that the Senators say he'll be sidelined "week- to-week" with "wear and tear." But if Milan Michalek isn't careful, he's going to play his way out of Ottawa. Leaving the Senators is not..." February 12

  • Sabres just what Sens needed

    Ottawa Sun "The Senators put the Buffalo Sabres in their place. But just barely. Winger Milan Michalek scored his eighth of the season at 12:15 of the third to give the Senators a slim 2-1 victory over the last-place Sabres to halt a three-game losing streak Tuesday night at the First Niagara Center...." February 11

  • Drama builds toward D-day for D-man Methot

    Ottawa Citizen "Marc Methot is one of the Senators local heroes. He grew up in the south end, playing minor hockey for the Ottawa Sting and Canadians; in his youth he cut a figure on local outdoor rinks and his father, Al , managed the three ice pads of Minto Arena, where Marc and his brother Matthieu roamed..." February 11

  • Methot wants to stay with Ottawa Senators

    Ottawa Sun "The clock is ticking on Marc Methot and the Senators. And, he made it clear Monday, there is no place like home.

  • Young teammates rave about Chris Phillips' career

    Ottawa Citizen "We played a little word association game Tuesday with Ottawa-born, Ottawa-bred defenceman Mark Borowiecki, who was a passionate Senators fan before becoming a Senators player himself.

  • Senators' Neil doesn't want to leave Ottawa; won't be dealt

  • Stars Power Play Cashes In, Gives Them 6-3 Win Over Senators

    Defending Big D "The first ten minutes sure were pretty tonight. The Dallas Stars, beneficiary of already having one game played out of the All-Star break, came out to another quick-paced start. Unlike against Montreal, the Stars were able to make that start count. They scored three goals in the span of..." January 30

  • NHL teams can expect salary cap woes if Canadian dollar keeps falling "On a day when one of the game’s all-time greats formally announced his retirement, the plummeting exchange rate for the Canadian dollar probably isn’t the sexiest topic to tackle.

  • Craig Anderson out with injury, Andrew Hammond recalled on emergency basis

    Ottawa Citizen "Ottawa Senators’ No. 1 goaltender Craig Anderson has been sidelined with what coach Dave Cameron describes as a “day-to-day” ailment.

  • Why the NHL's most hated players are never going away "They tend to be some of the most hated players in the NHL, and when they inevitably do something reckless you probably want them out of the league.

  • Sens hope Spezza greeted warmly

    Ottawa Sun "Jason Spezza is scheduled to make his homecoming Thursday night. The big question: What kind of reception will he get?

  • Speedy Mike Hoffman ready to show his skills

    Ottawa Sun "Mike Hoffman wants to show off his speed Saturday night. The Senators' winger won the fastest skater at the Ottawa skills competition and at last year's AHL all-star game so it would only make sense for the 25-year-old Hoffman to get his chance to strut his stuff at Nationwide Arena. He..." January 24

  • Bryan Murray likely to step aside as Senators' GM after the season; gets to pick his successor

    Ottawa Citizen "He is a gifted raconteur, even among hockey elders renowned for their storytelling.

Murray’s great friend,..." January 23

  • Senators add to Leafs' anguish, but it wasn't easy

    Ottawa Citizen "The Ottawa Senators are headed into the All-Star break with renewed hope about a possible surge into a playoff spot. The Toronto Maple Leafs? Not so much.

  • Rangers sneak by Senators in OT

    New York Post "There is always room for improvement, and this getaway game before the All-Star break had quite a few points to be brought up after the Rangers return from a week-long hiatus.
