During a press conference on Friday at Scotiabank Place, Bell Capital Cup general manager Aaron Robinson announced this year's event has attracted a Guinness World Record of 509 teams, making it the world's largest ice hockey tournament.

"I have to thank the ODMHA (Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association), Hockey Outaouais, Jordan Silmser, for contacting all the teams, and Cyril Leeder for his leadership and guidance," Robinson said. "We're pleased to break this record. We're going to have more than 250 teams from out of town here in Ottawa."

Senators forward Patrick Eaves and defenceman Anton Volchenkov will act as this year's honorary co-chairs of the event, which is set for Dec. 28, 2006, to Jan. 1, 2007.

Redden out indefinitely
The Ottawa Senators will be without alternate captain Wade Redden for an indefinite period of time after the defenceman left Thursday night's 6-0 victory over the Florida Panthers early with an upper-body injury.

"I don't know how long it's going to be, we'll take it a day at a time," Redden said Friday afternoon. "I kind of got pinched up against the boards. We'll reassess it after three days."

It has been a frustrating start for Redden, who was hampered by a groin injury earlier this season, which caused him to miss eight games. While he's anxious to get back playing as soon as possible, he's not going to rush things.

"It's been tough, but when I get back from this thing there will still be lots of hockey to play," Redden said. "You've got to be healthy when you're out there. You've got to be able to do your job. We'll give it time to settle down."
