Scotiabank Place to Host Binghamton Senators AHL Contest

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 24, 2009) - Scotiabank Place, in conjunction with the Binghamton Senators, announced today that the building will host a regular-season American Hockey League game between Ottawa's AHL affiliate and the Hamilton Bulldogs (the Montreal Canadiens' AHL affiliate) on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 3 p.m. The Bulldogs will host Binghamton on Friday, Nov. 6, at Montreal's Bell Centre in the first game of the weekend 'home-and-home' series.

"As we continue to reinforce our relationship with the B-Sens, it's important that fans in Ottawa have an opportunity to identify with potential future Senators," said Tim Murray, assistant general manager of the Senators and general manager of the B-Sens. "Our existing rivalry with Montreal should make this a great weekend of hockey, showcasing a number of up-and-coming players on both teams."

The city of Ottawa and Scotiabank Place (then Corel Centre) last held an AHL game on Jan. 22, 2005, when the B-Sens defeated the St. John's Maple Leafs 4-3 in front of 14,210 fans. Current Senators Jason Spezza (two goals) and Chris Kelly (one goal, one assist) both had multi-point games in helping the 'home' side to victory.

Tickets prices are as follows: $24, $19 and $14 (prices inclusive of all taxes, but excluding CRF fee and convenience charges). Tickets go on sale on Friday, Aug. 7, at 10 a.m. and can be obtained by visiting, by phone at 613-599-FANS (3267) or 1-877-788-FANS (3267); in person at The Sens Store at Rideau Centre and Place d'Orleans, any Ottawa Sports Experts location and at the Scotiabank Place box office.
