First off, for the latest Sens updates, please follow me on Twitter at

Give me a Twitter follow, I will give you a follow too!

First up on my blog is the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Summit Series. If anyone is interested, I wanted to post this for anyone in the Ottawa area tomorrow afternoon. In addition to the CBC documentary on the Summit Series, there is another special titled, Ice Breaker. The 1972 Summit Series. A screening is taking place at the Bytowne Cinema tomorrow at 4pm. Tickets are available online and Liam Maguire will be there, with a Q & A afterward with Liam! The trailer link is below. Copy and paste the link below into your browser.


Next up, is the Sens Rally Tour. I've reached out to many in the Sens front office as have other media members about the exclusion of Gatineau and the francophone fan base. Many of us have sent Twitter messages to Anthony Leblanc but he continues to ignore all of us. He has gone on the radio three times in the last few months wanting companies to come on board, whether corporate sponsorship or season tickets. But he continues to neglect the Sens fans across the River! I know for a fact that Thomas Chabot, Mathieu Joseph, and Claude Giroux would love to accompany the Sens Rally team/Sens Alumni/Sparacat to a Canadian Tire store in Gatineau to engage with the fanbase in the Gatineau area. There are three more dates this weekend in Ottawa.

Prospect Challenge -

At Thursday's practice, AHL Head Coach Troy Mann had Boucher-Pinto-Lodin on a line together. This should be a great line to watch today when the Sens face off against the Boston Bruins prospects.

You can view the prospect challenge at www.senators.com as the game will be streamed live on the mainpage. Montreal/Ottawa on Sunday at Noon, or on the Habs youtube channel.

When looking at the latest signings by Sens GM Pierre Dorion over the last two days, Tyler Motte on a one-way deal with Derek Brassard, and Michael Dal Cole on PTO's, here's the depth chart for the bottom six forwards as competition gets going this Wednesday at training camp.
