Senators spread holiday cheer at CHEO

The Ottawa Senators met with some of their biggest fans today during the annual Christmas visit to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

The smiles on the faces of the children were priceless.

"This team means a lot to me," said nine-year-old Cheyenne Harper. "I like this team a lot. My friends like this team. Almost my whole family likes this team. This is pretty exciting. The players are so nice."

It was a special day for the players as well.

"To come in here and see the smiles on their faces is pretty special," said forward Brian McGrattan. "This is a big deal to the kids and to us."

Senators game announcer Stuntman Stu introduced the players one-by-one to the crowd to start the visit in the hospital's cafeteria. After the introductions, the group of young patients, parents and staff, had a special surprise for the team - a Christmas-themed song dedicated to the Senators.

"My friends and I thought this would be fun and creative," said Adam Fuisz, 13, one of the writers of the song. "I've never met (the players). This is pretty awesome."

After the song, the players scattered across the room to meet the children individually.

"It's always great if you can light up the days of those who are recovering," said Senators goaltender Martin Gerber. "This is a great opportunity for us to be able to cheer up the kids and put a smile on their face."

After visiting the group in the cafeteria, the players visited other patients in the in-patient units at CHEO and also stopped by Roger's House.
