Sens rookies double up on Panthers
KITCHENER – Mick Lawrence had three points, including a pair of goals, as the Ottawa Senators dumped the Florida Panthers 4-2 in the opening game of their rookie tournament Saturday afternoon.

Shawn Weller, who added two assists, and Ilya Zubov also scored for the Senators.

Weller batted home the rebound of a Peter Regin shot to make it 1-1 after the Panthers opening the scoring. Later in the period, Zubov wired a slap shot past Florida netminder Tyler Plante to put Ottawa ahead to say.

Lawrence, who attended Sens rookie camp this week on an amateur tryout, boosted the Ottawa lead to 3-1 at the 5:50 mark of the second period, converting a 2-on-1 with Regin. The Nebraska-Omaha grad added the insurance goal late in the third after Shawn Matthias scored for Florida. Both goals were power-play efforts.

Brian Elliott turned aside 23 shots for the Sens, who were outshot 29-25.

The Senators next face the Toronto Maple Leafs prospects on Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium before wrapping up the tournament against the Pittsburgh Penguins rookies on Monday at  2 p.m.
