Canadians love hockey and Ottawa loves the Ottawa Senators, its National Hockey League (NHL) team! Cheer on “the Sens” as they play their home games at the Canadian Tire Centre, September through April. Paint your face red and black, or throw on your favourite piece of Sens garb, and join the Sens Army — the ardent fans who cheer the home team toward victory against the likes of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, and other rivals throughout the league. And keep an eye out for the Senators’ fun-loving and friendly mascot, Spartacat!
The Ottawa Senators’ first home preseason game takes place on September 19, 2018 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. A few weeks later, Ottawa hockey fans will unite for the official season home opener on October 4th against the Chicago Blackhawks. Cheer on the Sens through the rest of the season!
