Game 3: Sens vs. Montreal. It’s safe to say it was a game unlike any other and, realistically, many of us will never see anything like it again. Between a 6-1 Sens win, a WWE-style Royal Rumble sequence of events, tons of memorable soundbytes and an overwhelmed stats crew trying to log it all, it was something else.

One portion of that game -- namely, J-G Pageau’s hat trick -- has been named one of the individual performances of the 2013 season according to NHL.com.

Here’s what their story had to say...

It’s an exciting time to be at Bell Sensplex for Sens Summer Camps as campers have been lucky enough to meet a handful of Sens players as part of their summer fun.

That trend continued today and will go on next week as well.

As national programs continue to roll out their orientation camp rosters, to no one's surprise, the Sens have a pair of representatives on the Team Sweden list in Erik Karlsson and Robin Lehner who are well acquainted with the national program.

With just a handful of RFAs left unsigned, the Sens crossed another one off their list today as Patrick Wiercioch signed a three-year deal with the team at an AAV of $2 million. It's a bow on what has been a busy 2013 thus far for the 22 year old.

Upon completing his first NHL season with the Sens, he got married earlier this summer and now has his first post-entry level contract as an NHLer. Part of the reason the deal took until mid-July to complete is because of that wedding, as the Sens wanted to give him time to focus family and friends. Once Wiercioch arrived back into town, the terms were agreed upon and the contract was signed. Now his focus shifts to his future in Ottawa.

Here is what he had to say about the deal, his future and the summer...

The NHL and NHLPA have reached an agreement with the IIHF and IOC that will send NHL players to Sochi for the 2014 Olympic games this winter. The appearance is the fifth consecutive time (beginning in Nagano 1998) that NHLers will take part in the Olympic games.

As a result, the NHL will take a 17 day break from the season (February 9 to 26) with the Olympics going on.
