“We have a strong lineup of games for the 11th year of our Scotiabank Senators Hockey on Rogers Sportsnet,” said Cyril Leeder, Ottawa Senators president. “In this challenging scheduling year, because of the Winter Olympics, we were still able to work with Sportsnet in offering our fans two games against Sidney Crosby and his Stanley Cup winning Pittsburgh Penguins, all five other Canadian teams, matinee games and broadcasts on each day of the week.”
“We’re proud of our partnership with the Ottawa Senators, one that dates back to the launch of Sportsnet in 1998,” said Doug Beeforth, president of Rogers Sportsnet. “We’re pleased to broadcast more Ottawa Senators games than any other broadcaster, giving Sens’ fans the ‘Hockey That Matters’.”
Senators fans will see on Sportsnet East 11 match-ups against all other five Canadian teams and 10 meetings against divisional rivals.
Other highlights of the Scotiabank Senators Hockey on Rogers Sportsnet schedule see 21 games originating from Scotiabank Place, 15 games on Tuesdays, 11 on Thursdays, and for a first time two afternoon Saturday games (Jan. 23 at Boston, 1 p.m.; and, March 20 at Dallas, 2 p.m.).
The 40 games on Rogers Sportsnet East brings the Senators broadcast schedule to 62 games. The national schedules from CBC, TSN, RDS and RIS were announced earlier. CBC has yet to announce its regional Hockey Night in Canada games.
