Ottawa Senators Tickets
Are Ottowa Senators one of the National Hockey League’s oldest clubs or one of its newest? The current Ottawa Senators have brought exciting hockey to Canada’s capital region since their rebirth in 1992. The Senators came up just shy of a Stanley Cup win in 2007 and registered some strong playoff appearances in other years. In the last quarter-century, the current incarnation of the club has not yet managed to match the dominance of the original Ottawa Senators franchise in its heyday. However, the modern-day Senators have had their share of good seasons and great players, notably all-time points leader Daniel Alfredsson, whose Jersey with the number 11 hangs from the Canadian Tire Centre rafters.

What conference and division do the Ottawa Senators play in?
The Ottawa Senators hockey team is a member of the Atlantic Division in the NHL's Eastern Conference. There are seven other teams in that division, including the nearby Montreal Canadiens and the Senators' rivals in the Battle of Ontario, the Toronto Maple Leafs. Those two teams are the clubs who most frequently appear on the Ottawa Senators’ schedule.
How long have the Ottawa Senators been active in the National Hockey League?
The current incarnation of the Ottawa Senators has been active in the NHL since the 1992-1993 season when they joined as an expansion team along with Tampa Bay Lightning. However, there was an earlier version of the team. The original Ottawa Senators team was a feared veteran by 1917 when they helped found the NHL, and they are widely acknowledged as having been the league’s first dynasty with their four Cup wins in the 1920s. The Ottawa Senators were one of the five founding teams of the NHL, along with the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Arenas (now the Toronto Maple Leafs) and the now-defunct Montreal Wanderers and Quebec Bulldogs. After the Senators' 1927 championships, the hardships of a small market took their toll, and the team's fortunes changed. They played in Ottawa with decreasing success until 1934, when they relocated to St. Louis to play as the Eagles for one more season before folding completely.
How long have the Senators played at the Canadian Tire Centre?
The Ottawa Senators hockey team has played at the Canadian Tire Centre since 1996, shortly after their return to the National Hockey League. The 19,153-seat venue gained its current name in 2013 when iconic Canadian retailer Canadian Tire acquired naming rights. In its short history, the arena had previously been known as The Palladium, the Corel Centre and Scotiabank Place.
How many Stanley Cups have the Ottawa Senators won?
The modern-day Senators have never won the Stanley Cup. The team did make it to the finals in 2006-07, losing in five games to the Anaheim Ducks. This current version of the Senators has made it to conference finals twice and conference semis four times. The original Ottawa Senators, on the other hand, won the Cup four times in the NHL era, with their wins coming between 1920 and 1927, a period of league dominance for them.
When was the Senators’ best season in the modern era?
One could argue that their Stanley Cup final appearance in 2006-07 has been the peak thus far in the modern incarnation of the Senators. If you measure by regular-season performance, their best points showings have come in 2005-06 and 2002-03; in each of those seasons, they racked up 113 points.Back to Top
