Ottawa Senators Training Camp – By The Numbers


Stats can be made up to prove anything.  87% of people know that. Hahaha.  An old joke, but got me thinking, and I did a little looking into some interesting facts about the players in Senators training camp.  Here is a breakdown of Sens camp by the numbers as they head into the season’s first exhibition game Monday night in Toronto:

1 – New first time NHL head coach

59 – the total number of players in camp.  Of those 59:

2 – Stanley Cup rings (Gonchar, 2009, coach Paul MacLean 2008)

13 – Players that were never drafted in the NHL Entry Draft

15 – Players that were 1st round NHL draft picks

15 – Players that have never played a professional game in North America

17 – Players who played for Binghamton during last season’s Calder Cup playoff run

19 – Players on one-way NHL contracts

28 – saw at least one game of NHL action last year

31 – Canadian born (13- USA, 5- SWE, 4 CZE, 3 RUS, 1 each from FRA, LAT & DEN)

32 – Ottawa Senators draft picks

1,477 –  NHL goals scored by all camp attendees (Alfredsson – 389, Parrish 216)

There are a ton more, but for your Sunday evening, these are just some of the ones that interested me.
