Now that he’s a regular veteran at 24 years old and the Senators are in need of a new captain with Jason Spezza now in Dallas, many think it’s time for Karlsson...

Erik Karlsson is the clear choice for Ottawa Senators captain

It’s been a tumultuous year for the Ottawa Senators. After a 2012-13 campaign that saw them somehow make the playoffs despite a ridiculous amount of injuries to just about everyone on their roster, they upset the Montreal Canadiens in the playoffs and even after their elimination to the Pittsburgh Penguins, seemed like a team set for big things in 2013-14 with a healthy roster...

Mid-to-late August is the time of year that most NHL players--at least those who have established longer-term homes in particular locales--begin showing up near their places of employment.

Where does Pageau fit in with Ottawa Senators?

A look at the Senators' organizational depth chart after the team's summertime activity to date suggests that Jean-Gabriel Pageau is still a bubble player. He just appears to have more of that bubble to himself right now. The 21-year old centre doesn't quite think of it that way, however. Five weeks before the start of camp, Pageau is confident in his chances of remaining...
