OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that their Minor Hockey Week tribute to players, coaches, officials and volunteers, will take place from Oct. 21 to Oct. 30.
Created in partnership with Scotiabank and the two minor hockey governing bodies in the National Capital Region - Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) and Hockey Outaouais - Minor Hockey Week presented by Scotiabank will feature programs and initiatives that highlight teams, associations, coaches, players, and volunteers in a salute to the region's minor hockey communities.
Special minor hockey initiatives and ticket promotions at select Senators home games
Each of the three Senators home games during Minor Hockey Week (Oct. 24 vs. Los Angeles Kings, Oct. 26 vs. Philadelphia Flyers, and Oct. 30 vs. Montreal Canadiens) will feature local minor hockey players and officials joining the Senators and the night's league officials for the national anthems on the team's blue line. Select games will also feature initiation aged minor hockey players taking part in the Tim Hortons Timbit Challenge during the first intermission.
Minor hockey teams and players are invited to attend each Senators home game during Scotiabank Minor Hockey Week with tickets at special rates for select games by using the promo code MHWEEK at

Minor hockey players attending Senators home games are encouraged to wear their minor hockey jersey to receive a ballot upon entering Canadian Tire Centre for exclusive prizes throughout the game including the chance to win autographed items and movies for a year courtesy of Scotiabank and the Senators.
Additionally, fans who purchase tickets to see the team host either the Kings or the Flyers will receive a Senators toque and matching mitts. For those purchasing tickets to see the Canadiens' visit to Canadian Tire Centre, a $10 credit will be added to the value of the tickets which can be redeemed on venue concessions, including the venue's new hot dogs - the best in Ottawa - or at the Sens Store.
