The Ottawa Senators continue to have a strong following from fans in Hockey Country.

More than 7,500 tickets were sold in the first hour of Saturday's on-sale for single games from October to December. In total, more than 13,000 tickets were sold during the first day of sales, equalling the 2005-06 record. In addition, game pak sales this year were double that of 2005-06.

"We are extremely pleased with today's sales," says Jeff Kyle, the Senators' vice-president of marketing. "To equal last year's record sales and double our game paks shows how excited our fans are for the season to start."

Hundreds of people flocked to the Scotiabank Place ticket office while others purchased their tickets over the phone through Capital Tickets. Hundreds more purchased their tickets online. It was a day many fans were looking forward to.

"I got (to Scotiabank Place) at 5 a.m. and there was actually eight people in front of me in line," said 21-year-old Ryan Joldersma of South Mountain, Ont. "I got eight tickets for opening night against the Leafs. It's the best rivalry in the NHL. No doubt this was worth the wait."

Ted and Molly Colwell arrived at 6:30 a.m. to find their spot in line. Waiting for the 10 a.m. start of the on-sale went fairly quickly for the couple.

"We read the paper, we got a crossword puzzle done, and we got our tickets. Not a bad morning," says Molly Colwell.

Tickets are still available for all games, including opening night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
