The 50 Greatest Ottawa Senators Of All Time: #50 – #41

2 of 10

49. Norm MacIver

Stats: 161 GP, 24G, 97P
Height/Weight: 5foot11, 180lbs
Acquired: Waiver Claim (Edmonton Oilers)

Before there was Erik Karlsson, before there was Wade Redden, there was Norm MacIver.

While his last two seasons weren’t very memorable, MacIver led the innagural Senators in points as a defender. His -46 plus/minus line also nearly led those innagural Senators. However, 63 points in 80 games was a stat-line that Wade Redden didn’t beat and led the Senators in defensive scoring until Erik Karlsson’s 76 point total in 11-12 beat him out.

MacIver entered the Senators organization a waiver claim from the Oilers. He would eventually leave the organization in a trade that brought back Martin Straka.

MacIver gets the nod in our top 50 list, considering what he accomplished for the innagural Senators and how his 63 points led Senators defencemen for almost 20 years.
