In addition to Rogers Sportsnet East’s 40-game Senators broadcast schedule, 12 games will air on Sportsnet Sens — the companion channel to Sportsnet ONE — which is available to fans throughout the club’s regional broadcast territory.
“With the upcoming launch of Sportsnet Sens and our partnership with Rogers Sportsnet, we’ll now have all our games available on live television for the first time in club history,” said Cyril Leeder, Ottawa Senators president. “Now entering our 12th season of Scotiabank Senators Hockey on Rogers Sportsnet, the year ahead will reflect our desire of providing as many Senator games as possible to fans throughout the region and our broadcast territory. Most importantly, this relationship continues to result in a win for Senators fans.”
Sportsnet and Sportsnet Sens will broadcast seven of the 18 match-ups against the Senators’ five Canadian opponents, in addition to eight meetings against divisional rivals.
