Oh man. Things are starting! Things are really starting! The Ottawa Senators rookies are playing their first game of the London rookie camp this afternoon, which means training camp is just around the corner, which means the pre-season is just around the corner, which means the season gets started in no time! Unreal.
To kick off the rookie camp, the Sens rookies take on the Pittsburgh Penguins rookies--the same way they started last year's rookie camp, in Kitchener. A year ago (less a few days, technically), the Sens rookies won 4-1 over their counterparts from Pittsburgh, backed by Robin Lehner. Hopefully this year is similarly successful.
Lines for the Senators rookies for this afternoon are expected to look like this:
Mike Hoffman – Colin Greening – Bobby Butler
Kaspars Daugavins – Jakub Culek – Erik Condra
Corey Cowick – Jim O’Brien – Mark Stone
Tim Spencer – David Dziurzynski – Shawn Szydlowski
Jared Cowen – Craig Schira
Patrick Wiercioch – Eric Gryba
Matthew Hobbs – Adam Sedlak
