1992–present Ottawa Jr. Senators

The Ottawa Jr. Senators are a junior-age men's ice hockey team from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Their home arena is the Jim Durrell Recreation Centre in south Ottawa. The club is in the Robinson Division of the Central Canada Hockey League, a Junior "A" league. The team is not affiliated with the NHL Ottawa Senators.

History[edit]

The Senators joined the Central Junior A Hockey League in 1979. In 1992, the team added "Junior" to become the Junior Senators or Ottawa Junior "A" Senators (OJS) to prevent confusion with the Ottawa Senators - expansion team in the NHL in 1992-93. One of their most successful seasons came in 2001-02, when the Junior Senators defeated the top-ranked Cornwall Colts 4 games to 1. Ottawa went on to appear in the Royal Bank Cup when the Halifax Oland Exports were hosting the event.

Ottawa has appeared in the playoffs several times since their 2002-03 championship season, but have only advanced to the Semi Finals twice since – in 2009 and 2010.

The Junior Senators have gone on to develop several collegiate players throughout the years, many of whom have gone on to accept NCAA and ECAA (Eastern Collegiate Athletic Association) scholarships and several more who have chosen to continue their hockey careers with Major Junior teams. From the 2011–12 team the following graduating players will be moving on to pursue their academic/hockey careers:

Josh Pitt Western Michigan University NCAA; Devon Rice Geneseo University NCAA; Kevin Ryder Amherst College NCAA; Drew Anderson Neumann University NCAA; Liam Burtt TBA; Ed Zdolshek TBA; Owen Werthner Quebec Remparts QMJHL; Riley Hennigar Peterborough Petes OHL.

Other Recently Graduating Players Include: Maxime Pilon University of Moncton CIS; Mitch Zion Clarkson University NCAA; Niels-Erik Ravn Lake Superior State University NCAA; David Walters Plymouth State University NCAA; Patrick Burns University of Ottawa CIS; Matt White University of Ottawa CIS; Aaron MacLeod Bemidji State University NCAA; Jonathan Grandinetti University of New England NCAA;

Peter Kennedy (class of 2006) accepted an offer from the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers is now playing for the Central Hockey League's Tulsa Oilers.
