Club History - 1992-93

After a 60 year absence from the NHL, the Ottawa Senators returned to the NHL for the 1992-93 season. The Senators played their home games at the Ottawa Civic Centre while the team's new arena, The Palladium, was being constructed. In order to bring the Civic Centre up to NHL standards, a number of renovations had to be made.

In the summer of 1991, every seat in the arena was replaced, and later that year the press box renovations began, divisions being added to provide individual broadcasting booths. In early 1992, the roof was repainted, fire-proofed and insulated. New plexiglass, new players' benches as well as a new computerized ice plant to control temperature of the ice were installed in the summer of 1992. The City also painted all concourse areas and added television lights along the North Side.

Over and above these, the hockey club oversaw a number of improvements to the dressing room areas, building individual lockers and a medical room. The Club added seats in sections 19 and 20, renovated the South Side balconies, put in new sound system and installed new scoreclocks behind the private boxes.

Thirty-two private boxes were built by the Senators at a cost of $1.2 million, accomodating a further 300 fans, completing the NHL new look of the facility.

With the building renovations complete the focus changed to putting a team together. The first step was the 1992 NHL Expansion Draft held in Montreal on June 18, 1992. At the Expansion Draft the Senators selected 21 players from the other teams in the NHL. Next came the 1992 NHL Entry Draft held on June 20, 1992. The Senators selected Alexei Yashin with their first pick (2nd overall).

The Senators opened the season with a 5-3 victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens on October 8, 1992. Neil Brady scored the first Senators' goal at 0:26 of the second period while Sylvain Turgeon scored what turned out to be the winner at 17:51 of the third period. Doug Smail added an empty net goal at 19:45 of the third to seal the victory.

The starting lineup for the historic game was as follows:


Goaltender 31 Peter Sidorkiewicz
Defense 4 Ken Hammond
Brad Shaw
Left Wing 61 Sylvain Turgeon
Center 12 Neil Brady
Right Wing 17 Jody Hull
