Senators Alphabet: C is for Chris

C is for Chris, as in Chris Luongo, a defenseman wearing #23 for the 1992-93 Ottawa Senators. Chris played in 76 games, had 3 goals, 9 assists for 12 points, and was a minus 47, tied for worst on the team.

C is for Chris, as in Chris Dahlquist #6, a defenseman with the team for two seasons 1994-95, and 1995-96. His time was unimpressive: 46-1-7-8, and minus 30; 24-1-1-2 and minus 7.

C is for Chris, as in Christer Olsson #23, a defenseman who played one season with the team. Playing in 30 games, he recorded 2 goals and 4 assists for 6 points and was minus 4 on the year. Part of the return package Ottawa received from the Blues in the Pavol Demitra trade, Olsson returned to Sweden the following year, while Demitra had over 300 career goals in the NHL.

C is for Chris, as in Chris Murray #17, a right winger who spent parts of two seasons with the Sens. In 84 games between 1997-98 and 1998-99, Murray had an overwhelming 15 points.

C is for Chris, as in Chris Herperger #33, a left winger who played one season for Ottawa in 2001-02, playing 72 games and chipping in 4 goals and 13 points. You can currently find Herperger playing for the Hannover Scorpions in Germany.

C is for Chris, as in Chris Kelly #22, one of the few Ottawa draft picks to win the Stanley Cup. Kelly score 75 goals and 176 points as a Senator. I actually saw Kelly play Junior A hockey during his time with the Aurora Tigers.

C is for Chris, as in Christoph Schubert #5, Ottawa's favourite German-born player (take that Dany Heatley). In four seasons with Ottawa, Schubert scored 23 goals and collected 65 points playing both forward and defense. He is also the biggest Chris on the list: at 6'3" he is the same height at Chris Phillips, but at 230 lbs, he is 15 lbs heavier. Christoph can currently be found in Germany, playing for the Hamburg Freezers (the DEL has some of the best hockey team name's in the world, Grizzly Adams Wolfsburg anyone?).

C is for Chris, as in Chris Campoli #14. Bryan Murray traded a first round pick for him (and Mike Comrie). He did not get a first round pick in return (or Mike Comrie).

C is for Chris, as in Chris Neil #25. With almost 1800 career PIMs, Neil is the undisputed all-time leader for the Senators. To put it a different way, he has spent the equivalent of almost 30 full NHL games in the sin bin. He has over 1000 more PIMs than the next Senator.

C is for Chris, as in Chris Phillips #4. Second all-time in games played for the Senators. First all-time in games played and points by a Chris in team history.

Let's talk all things Chris!
