The big news from yesterday’s practice in Boston pertained to the health of two of Ottawa’s centers. After lengthy period of time in which there were very few and relevant updates on the Peter Regin, the Senators organization revealed that the Danish center underwent a successful surgical procedure on his left shoulder that will keep him out of action for the next four to six months.

from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet, It has taken nearly a decade, but the Ottawa Senators have finally found the right coach for their star centre.
