Players will report for medicals and physical fitness testing on Thursday morning at Canadian Tire Centre, and then move to on-ice practices and a scrimmage on Friday at the Bell Sensplex.

Thirty-three (33) players appeared in at least one game with the Senators during the 2015-16 season, while another five players dressed with other NHL clubs.
