The Ottawa Senators are expecting to have an energized crowd for Saturday's home game against New Jersey.
"Hopefully, anything we can do to help with the spirits (of the city) and try to take (people's) minds off things is something we'll be happy to do," said center Kyle Turris. "Hopefully, we'll have a good atmosphere here Saturday and I feel like 'O Canada' before the game will have special meaning to it." It's been a difficult week for Ottawa and for Canada after the tragic death of a Canadian soldier at the War Memorial and an attack on Parliament Hill. Oct 24 - 10:18 AM

It looks as if the Senators top two lines are pretty much settled.

Ottawa's first line will feature Kyle Turis between Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan. The second unit will have Mika Zibanejad flanked by Milan Michalek (provided he is healthy) and Alex Chiasson. Ottawa is not expected to be a high-scoring team in 2014-15 but you can find 50-60 point value amongst this group of forwards.

The Ottawa Senators have signed a two-year affiliation agreement with ECHL Evansville.

"Having strong affiliates is vital to building a great feeder system to the National Hockey League," said Senators GM Bryan Murray. "This agreement with Evansville provides a terrific avenue for the growth and development of our players who are working to get their shot at the National Hockey League." The Senators also renewed their affiliation with AHL Binghamton on Tuesday. The Evansville IceMen were previously affiliated with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Ottawa Senators have agreed to extend their affiliation with AHL Binghamton through 2018-19.

"We've been very pleased with the development of our young players who have progressed through Binghamton over the last number of seasons," said Senators GM Bryan Murray. "Having a strong affiliate that gives our players the opportunity to learn how to be a professional and the chance to compete to win each and every night is a tremendous asset to future of our organization. We’re very pleased to know they will be our affiliate for five more seasons." Binghamton is coming off of a season where it won its division with a 44-24-3-5 record, but was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.

Bob Lowes has been promoted to the role of chief scout with the Ottawa Senators.

Ottawa Senators goalie coach Rick Wamsley will be living out of a hotel and then rental home for a little while after his neighbors house caught on fire and his place sustained severe smoke and water damage.

"They have to gut our place to fix everything," said Wamsley. "We have very little fire damage. It's more smoke and water from the fighting the fire. They basically had to go through our place to fight the fire next door." The fire reportedly began when a burning cigarette butt was tossed into a planter box. Wamsley's family wasn't hurt.

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray has been diagnosed with cancer.

Murray will start undergoing treatment immediately and his battle might require that he periodically spends some time away from the Senators. The Senators have tapped his assistant general managers, Pierre Dorion and Randy Lee, to temporarily fill the void in the event that it's ever necessary. We wish Murray the best of luck.

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean will return for the 2014-15 campaign.

Not much of a surprise, but there was some speculation that he might get fired after the Senators' disappointing showing this season. That would have been quite the reversal after he won the Jack Adams Award in 2013.
Apr 15 - 1:04 PM

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean said he was "numb" after Ottawa coughed up a 3-0 lead against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

The Senators went onto lose 7-4. This has been a hard year on the Senators and MacLean, especially following his Jack Adams Award-winning campaign. Ottawa has failed to live up to expectations and won't even come close to making the playoffs. Although MacLean's job is probably safe for now, this campaign has likely tarnished his standing with the organization.

The Ottawa Senators need to bounce back quickly after being outscored 13-3 in their first two contests after the Olympic break.

Ottawa is now five points back in the battle for the second Wild Card spot with 22 games left in its schedule. The Senators will face Vancouver on Sunday for the Heritage Classic. It should be a fun game for the Senators and Canucks, but it's also a critical two points.

When the Olympic break ends, the Ottawa Senators will have to hit the ground running with a game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Ottawa is just one point behind Detroit in the battle for the second Wild Card spot. This will be an interesting game because the Red Wings sent 10 players to the Olympics - nine if you don't want to count Henrik Zetterberg, who's out with a back injury - which is both a good and bad thing for them. It means that Detroit will have fewer players that have to shake off the rust, but they will also be adjusting after playing across the world in Sochi.

The Ottawa Senators have inked a 12-year agreement with TSN and RDS.

The two will hold the regional broadcasting rights for the Senators. TSN will cover at least 52 Senators contests per campaign while RDS will host at least 40 games. Meanwhile, Sportsnet and TVA Sports will air Senators games nationally in Canada.

Ottawa has announced the signing of GM Bryan Murray to a two-year contract extension.

He was also named him president of hockey operations for the Senators. "I am very pleased to have Bryan remain here in Ottawa for the next four years," owner Eugene Melnyk said in a statement. "Without question Bryan stands among the best general managers in the National Hockey League. Our drafting success and the emergence of so many young, dynamic players within our organization is a testament to Bryan's leadership and wealth of hockey knowledge."

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray is close to signing a contract extension.

Murray isn't looking to slow down at the age of 71. "It's a great business to be in," he said. "We think we have a real growing franchise here, with a lot of kids in the program and on the way up, so it would be hard (to leave). There's no question there's a time (for retirement), but hopefully this isn't my time." As he alluded to, it helps that the Senators are a franchise on the upswing that could be serious Cup contenders in a couple years.

The Ottawa Senators will host an outdoor game...eventually.

"Ottawa is going to get one," NHL COO John Collins said. "It's a great market. We had a great all-star experience (in 2012). It's just a matter of picking a date to commit to it." It might occur during the 25th anniversary of the Ottawa Senators in 2017. The event will likely be that year's Heritage Classic and
