OTTAWA SENATORS INVITE 22 PLAYERS TO ROOKIE TOURNAMENT

OTTAWA, ONTARIO - The Ottawa Senators pre-season, sponsored by Canadian Tire local dealers, begins this week with today's announcement of the 22 players invited to take part in a four-team round-robin tournament from Sept. 11 to Sept. 14 at the John Labatt Centre in London, Ont. Joining the Senators prospects are squads from the Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins and host Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Senators rookies will be led by newly appointed Binghamton Senators head coach Kurt Kleinendorst and assistant Steve Stirling. Ottawa's hockey staff will also be in London for the tournament.

The squad is made up of two goaltenders, six defencemen and 14 forwards (complete roster below). Twelve players were drafted by the Senators, four were signed as free agents, one player was acquired via trade while five other players are participating under amateur tryout agreements.

Eight of the invited players saw minor-pro action last season. Forwards Bobby Butler and Kaspars Daugavins, and defenceman Jared Cowen played their first NHL games with the Senators during the 2009-10 campaign. Cowen (2009), along with Jim O'Brien (2007), are former first-round picks.

The Senators rookies begin this year's camp with an open practice at the Bell Sensplex on Friday, Sept. 10, at 8:30 a.m before leaving for the tournament.
