One of seven NHL franchises based in Canada, the Ottawa Senators returned to the league in 1992 following a 58-year absence. Ottawa won 11 Stanley Cups during its original run from 1903 to 1934. The modern-day Senators have earned four titles in the Northeast Division, a Presidents’ Trophy in 2002-03 and trip to the 2007 Stanley Cup final. In 2009-10, the Senators reached the Stanley Cup playoffs for the 11th time in 12 seasons and saw captain Daniel Alfredsson become the first player in modern-franchise history to hit the 1,000-game plateau in NHL service. The team plays in the state-of-the-art Canadian Tire Centre, which opened in January 1996 and hosts 41 regular-season games and a variety of concerts and events every year. Since 1992, the Senators, together with its foundation, alumni, partners and fans, have contributed more than $65 million to community initiatives in the National Capital Region. Among its many accomplishments is the construction of Roger’s House, a pediatric and palliative care facility located on the grounds at CHEO.
