While we near the start of one of the more unique seasons in NHL history, the Ottawa Senators also debut a revamped roster
In this article, I will try my best to articulate things that the organization could improve upon heading into this new year, with 2020 in the rearview mirror the Senators rebuild moves on for another year.
2020 wasn’t all doom and gloom for the Senators as it was for the rest of the world, it brought a lot of gifts, including Tim Stuetzle, Jake Sanderson, Matt Murray, Evgenii Dadonov and a clear vision for the franchise. Multiple aspects of the franchise took steps forward in 2020 and now as we head into 2021 there are still some things that could be resolved in the new year.
Senators training camp kicked off yesterday at the Canadian Tire Centre and hockey is officially back!

With a totally redesigned format for this upcoming season has the Senators sitting in the North Division alongside the other 6 Canadian teams and with a 56 game regular season and limited fans, the season will be an unprecedented one. Aside from the uniqueness of the upcoming season hockey will still be played and on the ice, nothing changes. The team needs to see significant progress from multiple blue-chip prospects who are poised to make their way to the NHL (yes, I’m looking at you Drake Batherson).
