Finish the sentence... with Denis Hamel
Senators forward Denis Hamel's favourite hockey memory is scoring his first NHL goal against New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur.

From time to time throughout the 2006-07 season, OttawaSenators.com asks a player to finish a series of sentences to learn more about his life in and away from the hockey rink. Forward Denis Hamel is featured this week.
 
 
1. My favourite season of the year is... winter because I can go snowmobiling.
2. My favourite holiday is... Christmas when the family is all together.
3. The last CD I bought was... Hinder.
4. If I wasn't a professional hockey player, I'd be... working with my dad on the farm (in Lachute, Que.).
5. The most influential person in my career is... my father (Gilbert).
6. You'd be surprised to know that I... am really shy.
7. The funniest teammate I ever played with is... Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre with the AHL's Rochester Americans and NHL's Buffalo Sabres. He was always joking around.
8. The most stylish Senators player is... Razor (Ray Emery).
9. My favourite NHL rink is... in Ottawa.
10. My favourite movie is... Slapshot.
11. I took my last vacation... three years ago in Las Vegas with a few friends.

21. I wear No. 17 because... in my first year in Binghamton (Senators American Hockey League affiliate), Chris Kelly had (Hamel's preferred) No. 11, so I took his old number. I've had great success with it, so I decided to keep it.

23. As a reward for following a healthy diet, the favourite treat I allow myself to have occasionally is ... Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
