OTTAWA – In conjunction with Ottawa’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, Canadian Tire Centre (@CdnTireCtr) announced today that the venue will host a regular-season game between the club and the Toronto Marlies (AHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs) on Sunday, Feb. 15, at 3 p.m.
“We’re delighted to host a B-Sens game in Ottawa once again this season,” said Binghamton general manager and Ottawa Senators assistant general manager Randy Lee. “While the game is quickly becoming a fun tradition for both our prospects and fans, it also provides an opportunity for management to conduct evaluations in an NHL setting. Players are eager to impress in a building in which they strive to ultimately play full-time.”
The annual showcase will see the B-Sens oppose Ottawa’s Battle of Ontario rival Toronto and the Maple Leafs’ prospects for the first time, enabling local fans to potentially obtain a glimpse of the rivalry’s future. In addition to possibly featuring Chris Wideman (who is currently tied for the AHL lead in scoring) on defence, the B-Sens lineup could also include local forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau, former Ottawa 67 Shane Prince and Binghamton’s new captain Aaron Johnson.
Ticket prices for the afternoon contest are $12.50, $15, $17.50 and $20 (prices inclusive of all taxes, but excluding CRF fee and convenience charges). Tickets go on sale on Thursday, Nov. 27, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased by visiting www.CapitalTickets.ca, by phone at 613-599-FANS (3267) or 1-877-788-FANS (3267); in person at each of the 10 participating Canadian Tire stores in Ottawa as well as the store in Perth, The Sens Store at Carlingwood Mall and Place d’Orléans, any Ottawa Sports Experts location, Les Galeries de Hull, Ottawa Festivals and at the Canadian Tire Centre box office.
