With the end of August in sight, Sens players are beginning to trickle back to Ottawa and the Canadian Tire Centre to get prepped for the 2013-14 season. Among those making their first appearance of the summer was Erik Karlsson who is back in town after a summer at home in Sweden.

Sens TV caught up with Erik for an exclusive interview. Here's what he had to say...

Two more weeks of summer left (welp) means two more Sens player appearances for Sens Summer Camps campers at Bell Sensplex.

On Thursday, Sensplex announced that the final two player appearances would be none other than Mika Zibanejad, who pops in this Wednesday, and Chris Neil, who stops by the week after that.

Sens keep popping up over at Bell Sensplex as part of the Sens Summer Camp festivities and today it was Patrick Wiercioch who made an appearance to spend some time with the kids on the ice.

During his visit Patrick took some time out from his work as guest instructor to speak to the media about his wedding, his summer and the 2013-14 season ahead.

There is plenty of encouragement out of Sweden today on the status of Erik Karlsson who is currently taking part in Olympic training festivities with the national program.

In conversation with Swedish reporter Marie Lehmann, Karlsson explained that while he isn’t quite feeling normal in his left leg — a byproduct of having a severed achilles and the corresponding surgery — he is on track to be 100 per cent when the puck drops on the 2013-14 season.

I mentioned last week that Sens goaltending prospect Marcus Hogberg was a revelation to many at the World Juniors evaluation tournament in Lake Placid, N.Y., last week and it appears that he may be pushing the envelope on Team Sweden as well.

With Columbus prospect Oscar Dansk as the consensus favourite to start for Team Sweden come December prior to last week, it appeared as though Hogberg would be relegated to backup duty. After his strong showing against the United States, Hogberg appears to have forced his name into the starter conversation and, provided he has a good run to begin his season with Mora, he may be seeing his fair share of action in Malmo.

It’s another “Memorable Monday” here on Inside the Senate and, today, we take a look at what — in this writer’s opinion — was the nicest OT winner of the season for the Sens.

On March 16 in Buffalo, the Sens found themselves in the midst of an extra time streak. Coming off of shootout losses to Boston and Montreal, Ottawa was looking to turn around their fortunes. Lo and behold, they insisted on playing additional time for the third consecutive game and, being the third time, it was naturally the charm.

We have taken a look at the work Sens forward Cory Conacher has done with diabetes initiatives in the past and, for those of you who may not know, he has dedicated a fair portion of his off-season to charitable work.

Cory has spent part of his summer in Milton, Ont., working as an instructor at the Dskate Hockey camp, which is a hockey program for kids with type-1 diabetes — the same type he was diagnosed with at the age of eight. The camp is put on by both Diamedia Solutions and Medtronic — a medical technology group that Conacher works as a spokesman for — to help kids with both their hockey games and life skills as they manage the disease.

Conacher was interviewed on CBC Radio’s “All in a Day” about his own experiences and his work at the camps.

Where to begin with this one, really? In today's Throwback Thursday: Bodycheck edition, Dave Archibald is seen on a motorcycle, hockey bag slung over his shoulder.

As per usual, let's take a further look at what's going on here...

Marcus Hogberg stole the show during U20 evaluation games on Wednesday, stopping 27 shots to shut out the United States by a 4-0 score.

Hogberg, a 2013 third round pick of the Sens, made several big stops for the Swedes in tight, including a pair of highlight reel cross crease saves. With Sweden back in action today against Canada, it is unknown if Hogberg will get the start again or if they will turn to Columbus prospect Oscar Dansk.
