Where Ottawa - - Here & Now -

The Ot­tawa Se­na­tors push for a play­off re­turn with the ad­di­tion of Gatineau-na­tive Der­ick Bras­sard. Gen­eral Man­ager Pierre Do­rion thinks the team will be com­pelling and com­pet­i­tive this year, led by de­fence­man Dion Pha­neuf and Erik Karls­son, “one of the most dy­namic play­ers in all of hockey.” Home turf of­ten brings out the best in the team: “Cana­dian Tire Cen­tre’s fans are pas­sion­ate. There is cer­tainly some­thing spe­cial about watch­ing our team suc­ceed in front of 20,000 of their big­gest sup­port­ers.” The Sens’ home opener is Oct. 12 against arch-ri­val, the Toronto Maple Leafs, with pre­sea­son games Oct. 1 and 7.
