Despite being the darling of the 2013 playoffs, Jean-Gabriel Pageau is in a battle to make a very deep Sens roster out of training camp. While he turned many heads at the rookie tournament in London one week ago, the 20 year old Ottawa native has yet to nail down a permanent roster spot with the big club.

Pageau spoke on Friday about the fight to make the team's roster, playing centre vs. the wing and more.

After a solid rookie campaign in 2013, Mika Zibanejad will be looking to pick up where he left off as a sophomore in the NHL this season. Early impressions in camp are that Mika will slot in as the team's third line centre between Colin Greening and Erik Condra, though he has also taken quite a few turns with Mark Stone, on what has the makings of a line that plays all three zones very well.

Zibanejad offered up his thoughts on how he's progressing camp, playing centre and the Sens systems.

Bobby Ryan took part in his first scrimmage with the Sens today after finally being united on the ice with his new linemates Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek yesterday. Ryan dazzled some spectators with fancy stickwork and his finishing ability and appears to be settling in to his new surroundings.

He spoke today about how he's settling into his new line and system three days into camp.

There won't be any adjustment period needed for Cory Conacher in Ottawa this time around. After being acquired at the trade deadline this past April, Conacher has played through a handful of regular season and playoff games in a Sens jersey before attending the most recent Sens development camp.

As a guy who appears to be entrenched as one of the incumbents from last season, Conacher will have every opportunity to build upon a very encouraging rookie NHL season.

Conacher spoke today about his efforts to seal his place on the team's second line alongside Turris and MacArthur, as well as his approach to camp and this season as a whole.

Hockey is almost here folks, which means we can expect nice, cool weather, fallen leaves and sweaters to make their timely return into our lives.

With all of that in mind, I can hardly think of a better way to welcome this fine season back into our lives than sending some mail with a brand-spankin’ new Ottawa Senators stamp, which was unveiled today by Canada Post as part of their new NHL collection. Not sure what to mail? Here’s a pro-tip: Write mom a letter sealed with the Sens stamp so she never forgets your favourite hockey team. She’ll remember in December during a shopping trip with you in mind.
