The Ottawa Senators rookies will be making their return to London, Ont. and the Rookie Tournament at Budweiser Gardens this September. The 2014 edition of the tournament will be the second consecutive to be hosted in London.

The Senators will be one of four teams to take part in the tournament, joining the Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins and host Toronto Maple Leafs for the three day round robin tournament. In 2013 the Senators were the lone undefeated squad at the tournament, going 3-0-0.

Ottawa has either won the tournament outright or finished in a tie for first place in five consecutive Rookie Tournaments going back to 2008.

The full tournament schedule is as follows...

Sens TV had the opportunity to sit down with a handful of Senators players before they went their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to reflect on the year that was, look ahead to the future and get a sense of what's ahead for the guys.

Next up in this series is Cody Ceci. Ceci, Ottawa's 2012 first round pick, was recalled by the Senators to make his NHL debut on December 12 against the Buffalo Sabres. Just four days later in his third NHL game, he notched his first NHL goal — an overtime winner — against the St. Louis Blues and former Senators goaltender. At season's end, had played 49 NHL games and recorded three goals and nine points at 20 years old despite not being in the NHL conversation in training camp.

Ceci was a positive contributor for the Sens in all three zones during his rookie campaign with 51 per cent of shot attempts coming in favour of the Senators while he was on the ice. Not only that, but he earned a regular shift on the team's penalty kill and power play — playing over 25 per cent of the Sens' minutes both shorthanded and with the man advantage.

To recap his rookie season with the Sens, here's Cody Ceci one-on-one with Sens TV.

Sens TV had the opportunity to sit down with a handful of Senators players before they went their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to reflect on the year that was, look ahead to the future and get a sense of what's ahead for the guys.

Next up in this series is Bobby Ryan. Ryan joined the Senators on July 5, 2013 after a trade with the Anaheim Ducks — the team he had spent his entire career with to that point. He developed chemistry with Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur to become a formidable trio and finished his season with 23 goals and 48 points in 70 games after being shut down early to repair a hernia he sustained in November. He recorded 25 points in his first 26 games.

Ryan was also a strong possession player this past season with 51 per cent of shot attempts coming for the Senators while he was on the ice. That margin came despite drawing some of the toughest matchups on the team with the Ryan-Turris-MacArthur line consistently facing opposing top lines in strength-on-strength battles.

To recap his first season with the Sens, here's Bobby Ryan one-on-one with Sens TV.

Sens TV had the opportunity to sit down with a handful of Senators players before they went their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to reflect on the year that was, look ahead to the future and get a sense of what's ahead for the guys.

Next up in this series is Erik Karlsson. Karlsson played a full 82 game season for the Senators less than a year after having his Achilles cut by a skate during the 2013 campaign. He established a new career high in goals with 20, finished in the NHL's top-10 in assists with 54 and led the Sens in scoring with his 74 points. Playing for Team Sweden at the Olympics, Karlsson finished in a tie for the tournament scoring lead with eight points, was named the top defenceman at the tournament and was named to the tournament all-star team. He received Ottawa's nomination for the Masterton Trophy from the local chapter of the PHWA for such a strong return from injury but was ultimately not named one of the three finalists.

Taking a look at the less conventional statistics, Karlsson was one of the Sens' top possession players as well with the Senators taking 54.8 per cent of the shot attempts with Karlsson on the ice. Defensively, he saw his role on the penalty kill expand, playing roughly 25 percent of the team's shorthanded minutes.

To recap his season, here's Erik Karlsson one-on-one with Sens TV.

Sens forward Kyle Turris was an alternate captain for Team Canada at the World Championships in Belarus last month where he recorded six points in eight games but ultimately couldn't make it past Finland in a quarter-final game. Sens TV caught up with Turris for the first time since his return from the tournament to talk about his experience playing for Canada, wearing the A, Belarus and more.

Sens TV had the opportunity to sit down with a handful of Senators players before they went their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to reflect on the year that was, look ahead to the future and get a sense of what's ahead for the guys.

Next up in this series is Clarke MacArthur. He joined the Senators as a free agent last July after playing the previous three seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs and developed instant chemistry with Kyle Turris and fellow Ottawa newcomer Bobby Ryan. In his first season with the Senators, MacArthur recorded a career high in goals with 24 — despite goal scoring dry spells in the months of October and April — and put up his second best single season highs in assists and points with the Sens, finishing with 31 and 55 respectively.

Taking a closer look at the numbers, MacArthur was one of the Sens best possession players as well with 54 per cent of all shot attempts coming from Ottawa while he was on the ice — the second highest mark on the team to Erik Karlsson among players who played at least 30 games for the Senators. Not only that, but 58 per cent of goals scored with MacArthur on the ice were goals for the Sens.

To recap his first season in Ottawa, here's Clarke MacArthur one-on-one with Sens TV.
