Ottawa Senators Announce Training Camp Roster and Schedule

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2007) - The Ottawa Senators today announced their roster of 48 players and schedule for the 2007-08 training camp being held at Scotiabank Place and the Bell Sensplex from Thursday, Sept. 13, to Tuesday, Oct. 2. The 20-day training camp includes seven pre-season games in a span of 13 days. The regular-season opener is on Wednesday, Oct. 3, in Toronto against the Maple Leafs.

Players report for medicals and physical fitness testing at Scotiabank Place tomorrow and then move to on-ice sessions at the Bell Sensplex on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. On Friday, the players and coaches will take part in the 14th annual Bell/Ottawa Senators Charity Golf Classic at The Marshes Golf Club.

The Senators training camp includes five goaltenders, 15 defencemen, nine left-wingers, 10 centremen and nine right-wingers.

The list of camp invitees was built primarily around the Senators' draft. Twenty-six were selected by Ottawa in NHL entry drafts, four were obtained in trades, with the balance acquired as free agents signings and professional try-out agreements. Twenty-two players lined up for at least one game with the Senators during the 2006-07 season, while another three suited up with other NHL squads.

From the just completed rookie tournament in Kitchener, Ont., which the Senators lost in the finals to the Pittsburgh Penguins, 16 players have been invited to the main camp.
