The Senators training camp includes five goaltenders, 15 defencemen, nine left-wingers, 10 centremen and nine right-wingers.
The list of camp invitees was built primarily around the Senators’ draft. Twenty-six were selected by Ottawa in NHL entry drafts, four were obtained in trades, with the balance acquired as free agents signings and professional try-out agreements. Twenty-two players lined up for at least one game with the Senators during the 2006-07 season, while another three suited up with other NHL squads.
From the just completed rookie tournament in Kitchener, Ont., which the Senators lost in the finals to the Pittsburgh Penguins, 16 players have been invited to the main camp.
